We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Lucy in the sky ...

The weeks seem to be flying by, and another weekly challenge from the Craft Barn, which is to feature playing cards - hearts, diamonds etc.

I would think a lot of people have that grungy diamond shape stencil; I've had mine for years and it is a well loved stencil, looking a bit more grungy that it should!

With watercolour paper as a base, I created a background with Gelatos for a change, (but I don't have that many colours), using the diamond stencil, and a little stamping.

I then die-cut a butterfly to use as a mask, and darkened the surrounding area.  Finally, added a few words and tiny butterflies.

Happy weekend watching the tennis and eating a few strawberries (haven't got any Pimms though)!


  1. The reverse stencilling of the butterfly is a good idea, lovely background!

  2. This is so pretty....I love it! Thank you for joining in The Craft Barn Challenge.
