Challenge 27 Artful Times

This is sure to get your creative juices flowing as we are asking you to use stencils and or masks .
I started by randomly stamping some text and flowers, then painted the background with a pale blue and yellow paint, then using a prima mask, cut n dry applied green distress ink. Next using a brass stencil and more distress ink added the butterflies and outlined them with a black pen and some gold doodling, stamped the orange and dusted with perfect pearls, lastly stamped the text on paper coloured with the same paints cut it up and stuck it to the background.
It measure 7"x7" and was for a swap till I realized I had made it to big duh !!


 
Look forward to see you at Artful Time
 
I'd also like to enter this at Fashionable Stamping where they have a journaling challenge
Thanks to Brenda I'd all so like to enter Country View Craft Challenge of butterflies

Ooh, it's wonderful Von - I love the outlining - find it really helps the definition of the images... and I love the colours over the white detailing in the background!
