The Art of Stenciling

It has been years since I used stencils, in fact it has been so long that I didn't even know I had stencils! When I saw the challenge at Less Is More I figured that I would have to sit this one out! I pondered my different options, even tried to make my own stencils (as they suggested) but I was not very successful. When I opened the 'stencil' drawer, pulled out the box of brushes "VOILA"....I found real NBUS stencils! Now if I only remembered what I learned in that stenciling class. lol  After about 5 different times, I finally got a 'smudge-free' piece of paper! Consider this a labor of love. ha ha ha

A touch of 'stickles' was added to the flower centers, various dye inks were used for the coloring.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
