BELIEVE, BUTTERFLIES & WET STENCIL TECHNIQUE





Hi Everyone! Holly here today, and I'm happy to be showing you this card. Why?
Because it has some of my favourite stamps on it! 'Believe' is from one of the many fabulous new sets from Quietfire Design, called IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN MIRACLES, and the butterflies are from BUTTERFLIES/DRAGONFLIES. I use this set a lot.

I used the wet stencil technique for the main panel with the bright wild honey butterflies, and sponged inks onto the stamp, for the base card butterflies. DISTRESS INKS worked beautifully for both areas.
I pressed the ink pads directly onto the DAMASK stencil, then spritzed with water and laid the white card stock over it, allowing the inks to soak into the card stock. Lifted it and let it dry. Then, I stamped the small butterfly onto the panel, three times with wild honey ink.

Two rounded corners and ink sponged around the edge, and square bling finish the sentiment piece.
I believe this would make a great card for Grad, as the Believe in Yourself stamp from the set, could be used on the inside.

So, there you have it- some favourites of mine!

Confession time- quite often, the Quietfire Design stamp I'm using at the time, is my favourite :) 
I just know I can't go wrong using any of them.

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you're having a fantastic, creative day!
