Leaf Stencil

my cards 003

I saw this background technique on Technique Junkies.  You use a die to make the cutout and then use set the cut piece aside and use the cut out piece as a stencil.  I find it interesting because you are putting to use what you would throw away.

The base for this card is Recycled Classic Natural. I just love that little bit of texture there.   The stencil is done on Neenah Super Smooth Ivory.  I did use some distress ink around the edge for highlight.  The butterfly and the accent layer are cut from Malachite Mica/ Metallic.  The body of the butterfly is Dark Chocolate Mica /Metallic.  There is beautiful shimmer to the Mica/Metallic.  It also cuts the dies beautifully.
