Butterfly Tree #154

Sweet Poppy Stencil Butterfly TreeToday’s creation is using a Sweet Poppy Stencil – the lovely Butterfly Tree design.

I started by fixing my stencil down with low tack stencil tape and coloured the trunk of the tree using Distress Inks in a couple of shades of brown – with a little yellow added too.  I applied this using Cut n Dry foam.  Don’t worry if your brown ink goes over a few edges of butterflies when you are doing the little branches, it won’t notice once you colour the rest of the design.

I thought this would work really well with a graduated colour change – rather than picking out particular butterflies to colour individual colours – well not on this occasion – I will do that on another project another time! 🙂 (more…)
