Have I Got a Case of Butterflies on the Brain??

Welcome

I am enjoying using the goodies that I got in some happy mail from STAMPlorations last week 


The flock of butterflies was made using a stencil using the  Stencil monoprint technique I had read about a few days before


I applied the inks to the back of the stencil, sprayed them and 'plonked' the inked stencil onto the watercolour paper - volia - a wonderful print.  I obviously did not spray as much water on it as the 'tutor' did in the video, but I am happy with the results.


The panel was sprayed with red perfect pearls and some silver shimmer paint, the butterfly was cut and embossed using a sizzex ebmbosslet, and silver sequins and rhinestones added.


The sentiment came from the new release over at STAMPlorations called Fond Expressions and was stamped using espresso ink .

Two corners of the main panel were rounded, and this was then mounted over a deep green card - I am more than happy with this card.
