CAS Stenciled and Chip Board Hello

Had fun making a card today for favorite challenges.  I also did a Stenciled Monoprint Background technique by Lee-Anne Cross for the first time.  Thank you Lee-Anne.  So fun and easy. I used a  Tim Holtz "Stripes" stencil with Distress Inks then spritzed with water following Lee-Anne's video exactly.

This weeks SCS's  CAS372 "Love the Chips"  inspired me to use this scrap butterfly that I had cut out of a Emerald Green Brushos scrap.  I used my HLS Butterfly Die and cut out another thicker butterfly with my SU Coaster Board and glued to my brushos butterfly.  Looks just like chip board.  I outlined the butterfly with a mixed media pen and attached with Fine Tip Glue Pen. Loved how it turned out.  Always fun to use scraps :-)

My card is for three more Challenges besides the CAS372 Challenge which is Linked above!

  11. I agree with Bonnie--the dotted line tying the sentiment and butterfly together is perfect. Love the colors, and the way the watercolor paper adds even more texture to the card.
