Imagination Flutterby and Bay Leaf Stencils...

Good morning everyone

This week I've made two cards using some products from 
Imagination Crafts.

I started with a Craftwork Cards 6x6 card blank and attached a sheet of 
I then cut a piece of thick acetate to size (6x6) and placed the 
Imagination Flutterby Stencil over the top, taping it down around the edge with
Using a craft palette knife and 
 I spread the Sparkle Medium over the stencil before carefully peeling the stencil away from the acetate to reveal the butterfly.
After leaving the Sparkle Medium to dry overnight I then attached the acetate to the front of my card using extra strong double sided tape down the left hand side of the card
Because the tape was visible through the acetate, I attached another strip of tape in order to hide it with some ribbon and a few co-ordinating Craftwork Cards Card Candi.

My next card was made in a similar way.
I cut a piece of super smooth card to fit a 
Craftwork Cards 6x6 card blank and using Woodware Stencil Tape. I taped my
Imagination Bay Leaf Stencil to my super smooth card
 with Adirondack Pitch Black ink and some Cut and Dry Foam
I inked the card through the stencil.
I then cut a piece of strong acetate slightly larger than 6x6 size and taped it down 
using my clean, dry stencil (which I washed in warm soapy water).
I spread the stencil withImagination Sparkle Medium in Silver using a craft palette knife.
I carefully peeled away the stencil and left the Sparkle Medium to dry.
I placed the acetate over the black image but moved it slightly to the right to create a black shadow
I trimmed the acetate to fit the card and attached it  with strong double sided tape along the top of the card and then attached some black ribbon over the top to hide the tape.

Have a great week and keep crafting.
