Mixed media fun ...

What do you do with all the cards that you make?  I've made so many cards that I don't know what to do with them ... I love making cards and I love sending cards but I seem to have quite a surplus and still I keep making them!!  But not tonight ...

... tonight I have created a small piece of 'art' ... using an index card for the base (actually it is a piece of card the same size as an index card).

The background is from a print I made on my gel printing plate using acrylic paints and stencils ... I stitched this on to the card base to add another texture and also applied some black texture paste through a stencil.  I stamped the butterfly twice and then fussy cut them out.  I layered some strips of printed tissue, old book paper and a small piece of the background paper to provide a base for the butterflies.  One butterfly is adhered flat to the card and the second one is stitched into place through the middle.  I added the quote/phrase and called it done!!

Some of the supplies:
STAMPlorations - Trendy Butterflies Stamp set, Dots all Over Stencil
Tim Holtz Chit Chat stickers

I'm going to enter the following challenges:
