Dragonflies and Butterfly Harmony Card




I am still loving the look of combining Bister powders (from I Brake for Stamps) and beautiful stencils like this one called Dragonfly Harmony from The Crafter's Workshop to make easy but beautiful cards. This one might be my favorite- 'course I have said that before:) I simply attached the stencil to watercolor paper with low tack tape, sprinkled on blue, yellow and natural colored Bister powders and spritzed with water. The beautiful colors appear where the stencil is not and this background is done. I added a butterfly from Memory Box and a "Celebrate" sentiment from Cherry Lynn Designs and the card is done.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Sister Act and Anything Goes with a Twist, and the Stencil challenge at Addicted to CAS.
