Tarnished Brass Butterfly

Hi everyone, my stencil experimenting is continuing!
I wasn't happy with one try and used it to diecut the butterflies, then had another go with the stencil.
I'll keep practicing lol!

I'm linking up to some challenges:
At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday it's anything goes.

Tarnished brass distress spray stain; Casual Fridays Breath sentiment stamp; versafine ink & clear ep;
MFT pierced & traditional tag dies; bling from a large sheet bought at a $2 shop!

Thanks for visiting,

  1. Love this tag and love the sentiment. Hugs Mrs A.

  2. Looks good to me Cathy love the colour too, not my normal fav. shade but well done,

  3. Wow, this is really pretty. I love the gold and the stenciling is just fine. I think it is just up to you to do as much or little as you want when you stencil. I've seen some with a teeny little stencil showing and some completely covered. Mounted on the black made it so elegant.

  4. Your stencilled background adds a lovely touch to your pretty butterfly, Cathy! Thanks for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  5. Just luscious that butterfly tag on your card! Thanks Cathy, for playing with us at ATSM!

  6. Elegant and beautiful Cathy. Loving your natural colour choice too

  7. I think you could teach me how to stencil now, because I LOVE this tag! The stenciling is fantastic! L.O.V.E.

  8. Fabulous - as always Cathy - thank you for joining in the Cuttlebug Mania Challenge. Good luck!
