Do You Love Butterflies?

Hi friends - just a quick post to showcase A Colorful Life Designs' Butterfly Flight Stencil which I just love!
The movement of this stencil is what really appeals to me and I had so many ideas of creating with it - I'll show two here. Here is the image of the stencil from the website:
For my first colorful card I ink blended several Ranger Ink's Distress Oxides in rainbow order: Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Prize Ribbon.
A few Honey Bee Small Clear Dew Drops and a sentiment from Hero Arts Birthday Messages (retired) finished off this card!
This next card uses 2 stencils from A Colorful Life Designs - layered. The first stencil is Butterfly Flight ink blended with Ranger Ink's Distress Oxides Worn Lipstick and Abandoned Coral.
The second step is layering the Milky Way Stencil:
I love the various sizes of the opening of the Milky Way Stencil. I used the same Distress Oxide colors right over the top of the Butterfly Flight Stencil for a second layer of interest.
I felt this card would be good for a sympathy card - muted but a bit uplifting. I realy thank you for joining me today and don't forget to use my discount code: AnitaFan10 for 10% your entire purchase at A Colorful Life Designs!
