With Thanks

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week it is an Anything Goes challenge.  All three of my daughters got baptized last weekend (such a proud moment as a parent!) and several people gave them very generous gifts.  So, now we are need of some "thank you" cards.  This is the first:
     I started off with a Stamplorations stencil.  I inked it up with some Almost Amethyst and then went around the edges with Wisteria inks.  It still looked a little plain, so I used a dark purple colored pencil to add texture and depth to the petals.  Stamped the two parts of the sentiment with a dark gray ink and then stamped the butterflies adding darker ink from a marker around the edges and then using the colored pencil to add detail.  Everything was mounted on a deep purple card stock.  It's simple, but really quite stunning in real life.  LOVE it!!

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Thanks" Cling set and "Butterfly Sil. (sm)"
Dies:  MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle
Stamplorations: "Peony #2"

Challenges:
Unicorn Challenge #34--stitching, real or faux (I used a stitched die)
Stamplorations CAS Challenge--anything CAS goes

Stamplorations Never Ending Anything Goes--anything goes using Stamplorations product

Crafty Sentiments--anything goes

Oh Heather, your stenciled flower is gorgeous!! Love how you added the lines to the petals with a pencil - that really takes it over the top! Such a beautiful card!

Love what you did with the stencil and how you made some additional touches to it with the pencil. I don't have that butterfly silhouette stamp - Hmm, might need to get that one.
