Stencil Use

Stencils are becoming a fun way to make a card.  Before long a new Online Card class will highlight these and I am signed up.  Of course as my LSS store Fond Memories gets these new cardmaking toys in I have to give them a try.  This card was made as a quick birthday greeting for a friend.    I used the Memory Box "Butterfly Vine for this card.  I started with a 4 x 5.25 piece of white cardstock.  The next step was to use Antique Linen distress to get the outline of the stencil.  The butterflies were colored with Copic Markers Y18, B32 and B34 and then this was mounted on a brown 5.5 x 4.25.  A May Arts blue ribbon was added and this was mounted on the card base.  This does not take long and is a simple card.  Hope you enjoy.
