Up and Away

Such a lovely day here in Aberdeen.  I have been taking some photos in the garden that I will share with you. (The crocuses were photographed a couple of weeks ago).

I set out to make a one layer card today that would be suitable for the Less is More 166 challenge.
The colour challenge this month is:
A Touch Of Turquoise
 
I am also submitting it  to Virginia's View Challenge blog which requires the use of a stencil.

 

I had a die-cut that I had cut from card using my Silhouette so decided that I would use it as a stencil to create a background. The butterfly was stamped first before covering with a mask.  I used a natural sponge to lightly apply Peacock Feathers Distress Ink when the stencil was in place.

Sentiment - from a Hero Arts set.
Butterfly - from a Martha Stewart set

Way to use your Silhouette cut out as a stencil! The subtle inking from the stencil is gorgeous, Lilian!! It provides a perfect backdrop for the butterfly! So glad that you play Virginia's View Challenge!
