You should have arrived here from Angela's amazing blog but if you didn't and want to start at the beginning, just click on the SBB blog link above and start again!
Here is this month's gorgeous mood board, to inspire you! It may be the butterflies, the colours, the designs - whatever takes your fancy!
To create my stencil for the background butterflies, I punched from acetate a small butterfly using a Martha Stewart punch, and sponged the negative space with Distress Inks - either Spun Sugar or Worn Lipstick, moving the stencil around and overlapping the butterflies. I was happy with this drift!
For my focus butterfly, I watercolored some card with those same Distress Inks, and when dry, cut out the background butterfly with Memory Box Terrace Butterfly. For the second layer, I used a similar sized die by Memory Box - Lunette.
For my sentiment, I used one of the script word dies by Scrapbook Boutique - I can vouch that this lovely word die cut beautifully! I also used the same silver card to cut a few hearts. Finally my panel was cut with the scalloped rectangle from the Basic Set by Mama Elephant and adhered to a grey card base.
Now to the housekeeping part - if you want to create something or just join in to win, there are two ways you can participate in this challenge and have a chance to win a prize. You can comment on each blog, ending with the SBB blog, or you can create a project (either a card, scrapbook layout or off the page project) inspired by this photo. Of course you can do both for a chance to win both prizes! Please check out the rules of entry, and the prizes at the Scrapbook Boutique Blog and note that this challenge is open to Australian and New Zealand residents.
I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge - each month the entries are just amazing and we love to see how everyone seems to take something unique from the mood board.
Now you should hop on over to Linda's fantastic blog!
