ANOTHER BUTTERFLY

Decided to try another butterfly card today for Card Concept (clean and layered) and had made the stenciled background a few days ago.  Also had some vellum butterflies left over from yesterday's card and so began this card.  Colored the backs of the vellum butterflies with distress pen in same color as the stencil color.  Made the stencil from a PTI die and sponged the color, adding some ink spots by flicking my brush.
Added some yarn from my stash and the sentiments (happy birthday inside) and done!  Think I will also enter this in Virginia's View challenge to use a stencil and also Moxie Fab's Stencils: Styling with Stencils Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

Supplies:
Stamps: Technique Tuesday (wishing you); HA (happy birthday)
Other: SU beautiful wings die; PTI vellum; Ranger distress pens (tumbled glass and shabby shutters)

Thanks for looking and your kind comments.  Betty

  14. Such a pretty card, your use of vellum is wonderful, my efforts are very often less than pleasing, your cards are an inspiration to me to keep trying to get it right! Thank you

  16. Your card is so pretty! Is there anything better for a butterfly than vellum and the loopy twine and the softly stenciled background are a perfect place for these dainty little critters to land. Beautiful design! :)
