Butterfly basics, Happy Thing, Masks/Stencils

Colour my Monday! Peeled paint!

 

Another week where I remembered to do a Colour my Monday post!  This week the colour mainly in use was Peeled Paint. Normally this is a bit of a darker colour when I blend or stamp it, but with the Clarity Brushes I got a softer colour from it. 

 

I started with a little bit of shabby shutters for the first application of tink through the stencil and then added the Peeled Paint, building more colour towards the bottom of the image.  You may note that i was only using part of the stencil too as wanted some white space towards the left of the panel.  I love the effect of using stencils with the clarity brushes…. So simple, but effective! 

Then I used the Happy Thing bird stamp from this years saleabration.  I added colour using ink and water brush for a soft effect, and then fussy cut out.  Then the sentiment from Butterfly Basics

I mounted it on to some scrap cardstock, added the hand drawn wiggly border and dusted it all with the same green stencil brush to add a little bit of colour at the edge.  This was then mounted onto the card blank. 

Love the simplicity of this, and loving these stencils and brushes so much. 

Happy crafting!
