Another Wild Flower Silhouette!

Hello, thank you so much for visiting me and Happy Thanksgiving to all of my lovely friends who are celebrating!

Today I have another wild flower silhouette card which is similar to a card I posted Here.  This one below is much brighter with a black sentiment, flower and butterfly, and I added some all important stencilling which I think really makes a huge difference!

The background is one that I already made from a mop up and I added some stamping with chicken wire from Creative Expressions and a little Sheena Douglass splatter stamp.  I thought the background needed something extra so I took Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and some of that DIY tape with the little grid (I can't remember what it is called), stencilled through it, and it made it perfect - well in my mind anyway!  I do love stencilling.  The flowers are from Tim Holtz Sizzix die set Wildflower, the little butterfly is from Butterfly Frenzy strip die from Sizzix and the sentiment is from Paperartsy Jofy 09 stamped in Versamark embossed with white powder.  A few sequins for a little bling and all done.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

That's Crafty - Stencil it.

Bizzy Becs - Anything Goes.
Try It On A Tuesday - Colourful.

Thank you again for visiting me.  Take care.  Christine xxx

You used that DIY tape (I am not sure what it is called either - lol) beautifully Chris, your background is gorgeous and the silhouette flower looks very dramatic - such a beautiful card! Hugs, Anne xx

Super colours in your stencilled background Chris, using black for your wildflowers has really brought out the lighter shades hidden within. Loving those words... and I too can not remember the name of that tape hee heee!!! What are we 3 like :))
Best wishes in the That's Crafty Stencil it Challenge.. Tracey x
