Here is a card with a similar layout to the sketch from a couple of weeks ago at "Less is More". This time the challenge is to use a stencil. This super leaf stencil from Stamplorations was embossed with glossy black embossing paste and allowed to dry. After slicing it into two, the die-cuts from Memory Box were added plus a simple sentiment from Tattered Lace.
The joy of embossing a whole piece of card and then cutting it means that I have another piece to use on another creation! The leaves on this stencil are facing in both directions, so it doesn't matter which way up it is used.
Here I used a stencil from our sponsor Stamplorations and dusted some colour over it with a brush. When removed, I then stamped a few Stamploration butterflies in some of the gaps, then over stamped with the Stamploration sentiment stamp and added a Memory Box butterfly die-cut.
