Hi everyone. I made this for my dear friend, Kylie's birthday (Kylie is Addicted to Stamps), which is in early July. I mailed this a couple of weeks ago so that it would be to her on time. Snail mail from Canada to Australia can take forever. For some mysterious reason, it arrived to her in about a week ... crazy fast this time! Now that she has it, I can share with you. :) Hugs to you Kylie!!
Very simple design, I used a honeycomb stencil (made with my Cameo) and randomly sponged two shades of orange distress inks down the one side. I cut out the black butterfly (again with my Cameo), shaped it a little with my bone folder and added it on top of the sponging, with rolled glue dots under the wings to keep it's shape. A simple stamped sentiment, and it was done. :)
I'm heading over to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where Anything Goes. And also linking up to AAA Cards #42 - Pastes and/or Stencils.
I am also sharing a picture taken last weekend when we were all together to celebrate Father's Day. As Evan was heading out the door at the end of our time together, he mentioned we hadn't taken any pictures. I quickly grabbed my camera and snapped this picture of the three generations of Thompson men. :) LOVE this picture and wanted to share with you.
