Magical Butterflies

Hi everyone.  This card is a reminder for the CAS Stencil August Challenge.  There's only a week left to play along before the challenge closes.

This month is hosted by Robyn, and she wants us to use sprays through a stencil for our cards.


I used a new-to-me stencil to create a beautiful kaleidoscope of butterflies soaring through the air.  I added some magical powders to a mister to create a spray for the stencil.  It turned out well, but very soft purple, with lots of liquid, so I sprinkled more powder over top.  Once completely dry, I tapped off the excess powder so the background remained white.

I added a clear heat embossed black sentiment on a torn vellum banner to finish the card.

Close-up ...
We are joined by our wonderful Guest Designer, Hilary and Amy this month.  Check out the reminder post to see their beautiful sprayed stencil card, along with the amazing cards from our designers.

I hope to see you in our gallery!

The colours on the butterflies look amazing. I think I will have to experiment more with sprays. I love what you and the other designers have created xx

WOW! I have not seen such stunning butterflies for a long time, Loll! Did I understand the description well? You first scattered powders on the panel, then applied a stencil and sprayed with water? And then he added powders? The final result is amazing. Thank you for another wonderful inspiration.
hugs,

That purple is just stunning and you can see some of the green interference colours within, and perfect with the added torn vellum for that very apt sentiment. A stunning card Loll. x

Beautiful magical butterflies, Loll. I love how you added additional powder and the perfect sentiment on vellum, which did not cover up any of the pretty butterflies. TFS my friend. Hugs..Nancy

Awesome color with the powder in a mister. Love the torn vellum.

Kara Lynne said...

Gorgeous butterflies, Loll! What a great idea to first spray with color and then sprinkle the color. The vellum is also a great idea so as not to cut off the visual flow of the butterfly movement.
