Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge where the theme this time is Monochromatic. I used a stencil from Memory Box on ivory card and three shades of Brilliance ink applied through the stencil with a brush. The shading has not photographed too well, it looks better IRL. Before removing the stencil I stamped a butterfly stamp onto the two largest butterflies. The stamp was not exactly the size or shape of the apertures but with help of a stamp positioning thingy I managed a reasonable result.I trimmed the panel down a bit and brushed some of the lightest shade of ink around the edges and matted it onto some toning pearlised card and then attached it to the front of an ivory base card.The greeting is stamped with darkest shade of ink. The bodies of the stamped butterflies didn't quite match up so I added the pearls as a cover up as well as embellishment.
Thankyou for taking a look and for the comments you leave which all really appreciated.
