We;come to another day of cardmaking.
Here is my card for  SimonSaysStamp Blog

For my card I used a stencil with lettering,
washi tape with letters and 2 different sentiments.

2 stencils by Tim Holtz: the scribbles
(THS036) and the schoolhouse (from 
mini set 8) with worn lipstick and black
soot distress oxide inks. 
This sentiment is from the Tim Holtz set 
Ponderings CMS252 and stamped on top
of the stenciling with archival black ink.

At the bottom of the card I used a sentiment from the 
Tim Holtz setHandwritten sentiments CMS219 and 
the little girl is from

Today I color with my distress oxide inks for

For my card I used all kinds of materials by Tim Holtz:
stencils, stamps and oxide inks.
I started creating the background of this card with
3 different stencils and worn lipstick distress oxide ink:
Dot Fade (THS006), Latticework (THS019) and
Nordic (THS070).

Next I stamped the butterflies (papillon CMS106)
 in black on the card and in pink on a seperate piece
of paper. The pink butterfly is cut out and
added to the background with a piece of foam tape.

I also decorated the envelope with the same
stencils and stamps.

The birthday sentiment is from the set
handwritten sentiments (CMS219)

To finish the card I layered the stamped panel
with black and pink paper and for a little bling
I added some sticky pinbk pearls to the card.

Thank you for looking
