Stencilled Thanks


Playing along with a few challenges with this card.  First up is Clearly Besotted Challenge #10, Spring


Next up is Virginia's View Challenge #2, Stencil


Then we have Keep It Simple  Challenge #37, Stencil


And finally, Winnie & Walter Join In To Win, where this week's theme is thank you cards.

I stencilled Evergreen Bough and Scattered Straw distress inks through the Cubist stencil on a white card panel, stamped some Dandelion Dreams in Versafine Onyx Black, then stamped 'thanks' so that it crossed the dandelion stems.  I sponged the edges of the base card, then added the panel, and topped it off with a die-cut butterfly stamped with Butterfly Wishes in distress ink.

Stencil: TCW - Cubist
Stamps: Clearly Besotted Dandelion Dreams, Butterfly Wishes; Winnie & Walter The Big The Bold and The You
