Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Challenge 40

Hi there,
It's time for Challenge #40  at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.
As always the theme is Anything Goes.

Let me share my project with you.

The sponsors for the challenge are


I am using the image Freehand Butterfly 1  from A Day For Daisies. 
This butterfly choice comes with 2 images -
With this purchase you will receive two Digital Stamps of a lovely butterfly; 
one image is impressed with music notes and one without. 
I used the one without. 

 I decided to print the image out onto designer paper and 
I also decided to copy a dictionary page out onto card stock 
and then printed another butterfly image out onto that dictionary CS.

 Since the butterfly is a really open image it lends itself to mixed media of sorts. I decided that some stencil designs would be a perfect addition to the butterflies and to the background of the card, too. White paint worked well on the pink butterfly and alcohol markers was a perfect choice for the circles on the black & white butterfly.

Over the weekend I bought a new Tim Holtz Sizzix  Alterations die set. It is called Mixed Media #3. and I used the letters in the alphabet portion to add the sentiment.

The font on this alphabet set is really interesting and 
some letters are quite different and are a little hard to decipher.

I love this sentiment - "Hope is never lost." 

Stamps:  Digi image - A Day For Daisies - Freehand Butterfly 1
Paper/Card Stock

    Having a Ducky Day

    Welcome back everyone!!!
    Today is the 1st Tuesday on the month. The Craft-Dee BowZ designers post on Tuesdays and I usually post on the 1st Tuesday of the month.

    This month the sponsor is Robyn's Fetish. They have a great selection of digital images to choose from so I think there is something for everyone. Click here to browse her store

    Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is proud to sponsor this challenge.

    Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More, a division of I Did It Creations, was created and is
    owned by Robyn Weinrib.  Robyn offers a wonderful variety of digital stamps and digital papers, designed to meet the needs of all digital paper crafting addicts for every occasion.

    Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps And More is happy to award 3 digital stamps of the winner’s choice to the winner of this challenge.

    Seems I am into animals this month so I chose a darling duck to use on my project.

    I decided to show a momma and her babies. That's the great thing with digi stamps, you can enlarge or decrease the size to get the look you want. I had a cattails die in my stash and also a die to cut grass, so I was off to make this adorable card.

    The bow on todays card is another layered stacked bow. but this one is just 2 layers (loops) but the tails from the band around the card and the tails from the two layers make the bow look bigger.
    Lets take a closer look

    See, just two loops, but lots of tails, that makes this bow look fluffy and bigger than it really is.
