Use a Stencil For Country View # 39

Hello to you all, We have a new challenge starting today over at Country View Challenges and our theme for this month is

Use a Stencil

This month alongside our Challenge, we are also running a Blog Hop with a Sizzix Big Shot Machine & Die Bundle as the prize. To enter, you must be a Follower of our Challenge Blog and Hop along to each of our Design Team Members Blogs and leave a comment. We will still be running our normal monthly challenge and those who link their Use A Stencil projects will also be entered into our £20 Voucher draw.

I have made a background of Deco art paints and a PaperArtsy stencil using my Gelli Plate


I then stamped the sentiment and inked the edges with Black Soot Distress ink


I then stamped and coloured my butterfly before fussy cutting and 
adding it to my finished piece.xxx
