CC3 Challenge #4

Howdy all !   We've almost made it to Friday .. one more day.   My intentions of having my CC3 project in before I went on vacation last week didn't really work out too well,  but I tried.   Challenge number four is technique #49 - Layering stencils: Texture paste.     Two of my favorite things !!!

I started with an 8x8 canvas and covered it with Tim's tissue wrap - Melange.   Then I used two layering stencils, Chevron and Dot fade.    I'm telling you Dot Fade is one of my most used stencils .. I have three of them because I'm wearing it out  :)   Here's the canvas with the paste on ...........

I used Distress Ink in - Frayed Burlap, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey and Mustard Seed .. ok so if you've read my past posts you may have recently read that I hid my Mustard Seed so I would quit using it on everything ..  well somehow that little bugger made it back into my ink stack .. LOL

I used a butterfly from Tim's salvage stickers (Crowded Attic) and placed it over the butterfly on the tissue wrap.   I then used grunge paper and cut out letters using Tim's Word Play Sizzix die.  I used the Peeled Paint distress ink and inked my letters.  I'm not really happy with this only because the brown butterfly just doesn't really fit .. but I didn't want to color it and mess it up completely so I just left it be  :) 

Well I hope everyone has a great weekend !  Check out for details if you want to join.   Tim and Mario are giving an awesome prize pack for the winner and also  The Funkie Junkie Boutique is giving a gift card to a random draw.
Thanks for stopping in for a look .. Happy Crafting !!!
