Spread Your Wings

I used a die cut as a stencil to create a butterfly on my card front. It's great to celebrate with fun, bright colors. What do you think?

   Perfectly Penned

   Melon Mambo A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)

   Archival Basic Black

   Elegant Eggplant
   Sweet Sugarplum
   Tempting Turquoise
   Daffodil Delight
   Pumpkin Pie
   Watermelon Wonder
   Melon Mambo
   Rose Red

   Stencilling with Mixed Media

   Butterflies Thinlits Dies
   Basic Rhinestone Jewels

First, I die cut my stencil using the Butterflies Thinlits Dies. I chose this die because it was large and intricate. 

I then placed it on my Whisper White panel. I used a bit of washi tape to hold it in place. I then colored in the stencil using various markers. 

Next, I stamped my sentiment above the butterfly.

I adhered this panel to the Melon Mambo card front and added rhinestones for the butterfly's body. I also adhered the other Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.
