Outdoor Kraft Resist

Hi everyone,

Linda has extended last challenge from the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge with one week, and we are welcome to enter another piece. So why not? A very good reason is that Mario has sent a surprise package to Linda to give away to a lucky winner!
Today Frilly and Funkie also a have new challenge up for play. The theme for this challenge is outdoors/nature and a sentiment that goes with it.

Butterflies are such beautiful creatures. Their lifecycle is amazing and I just love the beautiful colors and shapes of their wings. Simply stunning! Fortunately there was a gorgeous sheet in the Kraft Resist Paper Pad by Tim Holtz  with beautiful butterflies and moths. I used some Picket Fence Distress Stain on the background yet again, so that the bright colors will stay in tact when I apply them to the Kraft paper. I wanted to let the butterflies as they are and I created some masks for them to cover them up. With some Distress Inks I made a background and started working with some stencils. Finally I used a few stamps for some texture and then looked for a nice sentiment. I found a nice one very quickly. Printed it out and distressed it. Of course my favorite wooden butterflies had to be on here!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
