My card for this week's MIM was a bit of a challenge for me. I was trying to use the Butterfly cover plate, making my own stencil and that just didn't work too well. Her's is much softer. I usually like things bold but I felt this was too bold. So softened a bit with a MFT Stitched Square vellum
I have been practicing with the PTI Peonies on Parade Watercolor Sheets and my flowers would always turn out one color. Still need more practice but this is the best of them. I like how the background turned out. Used Distress Inks in pinks & green. That is Twisted Citron not yellow.
Kathy always seems to stump me with her challenges and she didn't disappoint again this week. She asked us to make a Christmas scene and you think that would be easy, but wow I worked on this for 3 or 4 hours before I came up with this. It went in so many directions before I actually got something I liked. Great challenge Kathy.
So I had to do another card for this month's CAS Mix Up. Flowers or butterflies are my favorite cards to make and the first one I did for the challenge was not either one of those. Love how this turned out.
