Stylized Butterflies

I've made a couple cards with the beautiful new Simon Says Stamp Stylized Butterfly die and stencil from the DieCember® release...
I LOVE the idea of a stencil to go with an intricate die cut like this...it makes it easy for creating and for creativity!  I made two very similiar cards in design, but what I thought to do was change the direction of the ink blending.  This first one I blended horizontally, the second one vertically!  I used five different colors on the first butterfly.  I layered two of the die cuts, adhered them to the colored stencil butterfly, after adding an older much loved Simon sentiment.  Here's a close up...

The second one, I opted to used three shades of blue for my butterfly...
I chose the darkest shade for the middle, and lightened as I blended out from the middle. I swiped a small piece of cardstock with the darkest ink and die cut the butterfly's body(thorax and abdomen) and layered.  I used a "missing you" sentiment as I felt it kind of went with a "blue" butterfly.  Here's a close up...
 
These cards were so much fun to make...super fun!! Hope, in the craziness of the season, and all the things that have to get done, you make some time for fun!!
Thanks for taking time to stop by!! Hugs!! Lisa
