This week I chose to use two different butterfly stencils, LL518, Vertical Butterflies, and LM257, Heliconia butterfly , and an initial stencil, LS H, to create a bookmark card for this challenge.
I used stencil brushes and Brilliance Sunflower Yellow and Rust with the Vertical butterfly stencil around the outer edge of the base yellow card, and on a piece of white cardstock. Edge the white cardstock with the Rust ink then layer onto yellow cardstock also edged with Rust. Stencil the "H" near the bottom with Rust, then coat with a layer of Matte Yellow Embossing Paste. When the paste dries, dab with Stamp 'n' Stick and coat with Metallic F/X Glacier. Punch a hole near the top and add a ribbon.
The teal layer has a 1" wide slit cut across the center for the bookmark to slip through and is edged with a COPIC marker (BG72). Use foam tape to raise the teal layer for more dimension. The Heliconia butterfly was paste embossed on a piece of the teal paper using Matte Yellow Embossing Paste, and Art Glitter Bananan sprinkled on the wet paste. A little Rust was added on top after the paste dried. Cut it out leaving a small edge of teal and mount it on the teal layer.
This design can be personalized by changing the initial. The initial stencils are wonderful for creating sets of stationery or notecards for friends and family.
