Happy Spring Break...Sophie and I are enjoying a week of play dates with friends, good food and getting ready for Easter. The creative bug has bit me and I've been crafting up a storm. Hopefully I'll get everything photographed and posted soon.
I am super excited to share this card. I made it for Virginia's View Challenge #2. This challenge is all about stencils. I will admit that I own one stencil...yup, just one. I used it on a card that I might share. LOL. That should tell you what I think about that card.
Now this card on the other hand, I love. I use the negative from a die cut of a butterfly. I then stamped it with a wood grain strip stamp from MME Miss Caroline set in Early Espresso ink from Stampin' Up.
The plaid cardstock is also from MME Miss Caroline. I used Tea Stain Distress Ink and inked all around the edges of the card. I also inked the edges of the sentiment (from Stampin' Up). Honestly I wanted to add so much more to this card, but the more I tried and arranged other embellishments on it, it just didn't work.
Here is a action shot...I used washi tape to adhere the "stencil" to my cardstock. So easy to do and so easy to remove.
I really had fun with this card...I'm definitely still learning and have a lot to learn! I'm also linking up with Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Winged Things. Thanks for stopping by...hoping you're having a great week.
