Fun with Stencils

Hello and welcome! It's time for my weekly Allsorts challenge card share and this time around it's Lorraine's turn to host. Her optional theme is "Stencils" and we can't wait to see how you incorporate them on your creations but as there is an Anything Goes option all other entries are welcome too! We have a new set of prizes for the challenges ending in June (which includes this one) and remember the winners post for the last few challenges including the special birthday challenge from last week has been announced on the challenge blog so be sure to take a peek as there were may winners!

Here is what you can win in the upcoming challenges including today's. They are from Sizzix, AALL and Create, Aldridge Crafts, Lavinia and Ruth Hamilton Design.

Stencils are probably my current favorite crafting tool besides stamps so of course I went with the optional theme and I used 2 stencils on today's card. 


Unfortunately I threw away the packages from my stencils so I can't tell you who the maker is but there are many fabulous floral stencils available as well as honeycomb stencils. I used my old trusty French Script (SU) background stamp for more interest, then added the butterflies which were done with a Martha Stewart punch. Sentiment is from one of Tim Holtz's Quotations sticker sets. I can always find a quote there when I'm not sure what type of quote/sentiment I want to use. Thought the card needed something else so I used a white Sakura gelly roll pen to add small dots around each flower petal.

I layered the image/stencilled panel onto some Twisted Citron inked card stock then purple card stock from Stampin Up. A few sticky rhinestones added to the butterflies' bodies finish it off.
