A few challenges with one card

This card fits in with a few challenges, yay! First of all, the current Less is More challenge for week 229 is 'Stencilling'. Tick!

Next, the current challenge over at Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge #33 is Butterflies + F is for Flowers. Tick!

And also, there's a new monthly challenge which promises to be great fun - so this card is also for the Memory Box challenge #1 - Butterflies. To enter you just have to use a Memory Box product - not difficult here for sure! Tick!
I used:

- A6 white card blank

- a snippet of white card

- a Memory Box die called 'Wild Blooms' which I die cut, then used the negative as a stencil with a makeup sponge and SU inks ('Old Olive' and 'Melon Mambo')

- then die cut the rectangle using a Lil' Inkers 'Stitched Rectangle' die

- the sentiment is from a Stampendous set called 'Happy Messages', stamped using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink

- final touch, two butterflies die cut from a pale blue snippet using SU's 'Beautiful Wings' Embosslit

I think this will be an OK card to enclose with a Snippets Playground prize too :)

Way to knock out 3 challenges in one. You did a fabulous job with your home made stencil. I like how the color gets softer at the edges of the flower. Very pretty.

This is a pretty CAS card Di and the die cut negative used as a die is a great idea. x

Pat said...

Sorry! What I meant to say is using the die cut negative as a stencil. My brain seems to be a bit scrambled this morning ..lol. x

Clever, celver you to cut the die out and then use the negative. Hope you kept the
flower!! Simples and elegant. I lost my SU butterfly the other night and turned the room up side down looking for it. Found it eventualy inside another SU die box where I had put it for safe keeping being as it is only small and wafer thin. Thankyou for fluttering by. hugs Mrs A.
