Stencil It



Hello Monday, my friends! Are you ready for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge? We are ready for you with our STENCIL IT theme this week.

I decided to make a card and use the new Beautiful Day stamps and Butterflies stencil from Simon's April Card kit.



I started by creating a background with Distress Oxide inks. I smudge them across my craft sheet, mist with water, and lay the paper down into it. I love the surprise every time I pull it up! I dried that layer, then stenciled in some butterflies with Simon's stencil.


I overstepped one of the stenciled butterflies, and stamped a few more in Simon's High Dive ink, as well as stamping the words in black ink. I can easily use this as a sympathy card, or for a friend in need of a boost. 


I went around some of the butterflies with gold pen, and added Wink of Stella to the small ones. I had some crinkle ribbon I had in my stash that I had previously dyed with Abandoned Coral distress ink.  Then I thought I'd add a bit more with a tiny rose in the center of the ribbon. 

My stenciled butterfly card is ready to be used!


Now, it's time for you to pull out some stencils and join us this week in our Stencil It challenge! I'm looking forward to seeing what you share!
