Two of a Kind.

Good morning all , here we are...we made it to Friday...

Today it is a new challenge day over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog...our new theme is...

Two of a kind...or Pairs..

Our current challenge is hosted by the lovely Millazin and sponsored by Crafty Sentiments.

Here is my offering, I do hope that you like it.

I have gone for a pair of butterflies...

I started with a piece of Gelli card, the butterfly tree stencil and some Grunge Paste....

When the GP was dry I added some blue Adirondack ink with my stencil brush

Next using some torn paper and Butterscotch ink I made some land...

Then I placed the stencil back into place and added some colour to the butterflies and the tree.

I wanted to add some extra interest into the background, so back out came my Sail Boat Blue ink and that fabby stencil.....Jo's Bubbles....well it would be rude not to use it....

Next some matting and layering...

And then stamping the butterflies onto separate card and cut out.

The stamps , stencils, inks , stencil brushes and GP can all be found over at the Claritystamp website...

( and remember need ....Jo's Bubbles...)

Some lovely flowers from Sweet Lilac Paper Flowers,....

And job done....
