Stencil monoprint butterflies


Hi everyone, I had a play with a new stencil, Doodle Art 1 by Tim Holtz, and after I had created a rainbow coloured tag with it there was a lot of ink left on the stencil. 
(I'll show the tag in another post) 

Not wanting to waste the ink I pressed it onto some cardstock, covered it with a paper towel and pressed firmly to transfer the ink. It left a cool impression, a stencilled monoprint.

I diecut some of it into these delicate butterflies.

I layered up my card then decided to add the leaves, next time I'll play around with the position in my misti as the circle is a bit wonky! Might help with stamping on the textured base too!

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Allsorts has a theme of birds, butterflies or bees.

As You Like It Challenge wants to know which is your favourite, stencilling or embossing and why.

I like wet and dry embossing and stencilling, but stencilling is just so much fun! It can add so much colour and texture to a design, yet still be CAS and one layer, or it can help to add lots of dimension and grunge with pastes and sprays.
You can also create your own stencils with diecuts too so the range is huge.

Tic Tac Toe Challenge,
I chose stencil, free (diecutting) and used the word Mum, well Mother!

A great idea to use the residue ink on the stencil making pieces of patterned card to cut your pretty butterflies with Cathy and love the added green leaves. A really beautiful CAS Mother's Day card. x
