Marvelous Nature

Good Morning
April just flew by and I can't believe it's the first day of May!
I just had to make a card using this just released Layered Butterfly stencil and I paired it with the Shell Swirl stencil that are both from A Colorful Life Designs.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock and placed the Shell Swirl stencil across the top of my panel. Using some Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and a hint of Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink, I inked it up with my blending brushes.  
  • I lifted the stencil, wiped it off and repositioned it along the bottom and inked it up with the same colours.  I set that aside to dry.
  • I took another piece of white cardstock and place the solid part of the Layered Butterfly stencil onto it and inked it with some Tumbled Glass DOX ink.
  • I removed that part of the stencil and positioned the details of the butterfly over the solid inked area.  I used the same colours as mentioned above to ink it up.
  • I splattered the butterfly with my white Posca pen, then fussy cut it out.
  • Next, I placed the main stenciled panel into my Misti and stamped the sentiment from Impression Obsession with some black Versafine Clair.
  • I glued that onto a piece of green cardstock and then onto a heavy white card base.
  • I pop dotted the butterfly up into the corner.

Here are the stencils I used:

This Shell Swirl is a fabulous shaped stencil and makes a gorgeous background to the beautiful butterfly Karen in your three favourite colours for a very pretty look, and a great sentiment too. x
