Hi everyone! Jill Foster here for Penny Black and it is such an honor to share a trio of cards with you today. I decided to use one of my favorite Penny Black Creative Dies, 51-132 Flights of Fancy. But instead of using the positive die cut, I used the negative “leftover” piece as a stencil. This is a great way to get even more use from your dies!

Using a stenciled image, as opposed to a stamped outline, gives the look of hand-painted artsy butterflies.

Place the “stencil” over your watercolor paper and apply watercolor paints to the body and wings of the butterfly. Once dry, remove the stencil, and paint the background area surrounding the butterflies.

I kept things loose and flowing, allowing the background color to drip and splatter.

Finally, I stamped my sentiments using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. The Penny Black transparent set, 30-283 Snippets, is perfect for butterfly images …or basically anything else you could need!
