One Layer Butterfly

I just got this stencil  (Mini Climbing Vine-- The Crafters Workshop) and wanted to try it out.  I had the butterfly stamp on my worktable from another project and my Distress inks were out. Since I needed a quick card to send to my sister, I pulled out a card blank and made it all one layer right on the blank.

I started with taping the stencil down and using an ink blending tool with Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn DIs.   I carefully removed the stencil, spritzed with a Mini Mister to blend the colors a little and then dried it with my heat gun.  I then turned my still wet stencil over, put it on the background and pressed down with a clean towel.  The second (reversed) image does not show up well in the photo (you can see it just a bit to the right of the right wing), but is very clear, but light, in person.

Next I stamped the butterfly (Outlines Rubber Stamp Co.) with Archival Jet Black and colored using a water pen and Distress markers (Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint).  I had a little Peeled Paint on the brush and added the shadow with it. Done and ready to send!
