Art using Stencils

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.    We are doing well and keeping quite busy.    I haven't had much time in my craft room or for blogging but thought I would show this card I made a few weeks ago.


I used mostly inks and stencils, the only stamping is the quote by Impression Obsession.  The butterflies were inked thorough a stencil after creating the rest of the background.  I added little dots and outlined with a white Gelly Roll Pen.  I also added some Silver Frantage.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day,

Shirley

  10. This is a bit different from your usual style Shirley and I love it. The touches of white - the circles and outlines are brilliant and the italic font of the sentiment works really well. Great work. Hope all is well in your part of the world! Elaine xxx

  19. Beautiful work Shirley. I love the butterfly stencil. I would have guessed it was a stamp. Love your Bokeh technique. Great minds think alike. Have a super (quiet) weekend enjoying the sun in your back yard.
