Allsorts Challenge #651

Good morning … It’s Saturday so it's time for another weekly Allsorts Challenge - hope you can find time to join us. This week Brenda has chosen the theme and it is

One for the Girls

We have 2 fab prizes on offer- they are:

A gorgeous Tattered Lace die

... and a Woodware stamp set.

Here's my card for this week.

This card is again something of a showcase for my recent winnings .. I won the beautiful digi image and also the gorgeous Uniko sentiment set in recent blog challenges. 

I made a simple background by randomly sponging two colours of distress oxide ink through a stencil and then spattering with silver acrylic paint. I printed off my digi image, coloured with Promarkers and then fussy cut and adhered to the background, I then stamped and heat embossed my sentiment, and attached die cut and punched butterflies and gems before matting the whole panel onto co-ordinating glitter card and attaching to my card base.

Stamps: Rachel Vass Designs “Awesome Anemone” (digi); Uniko “Birthday Sentiments”;
Media: flower - Promarkers; background - Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks (Kitsch Flamingo, Cracked Pistachio);silver acrylic paint;
Tools: stencil - Craft Sensations at The Range; Joy! Crafts butterfly die; small butterfly craft punch (unknown);
Gems from my stash.

Challenges I would like to enter:

As You Like It - Favourite: Dies or Stencils, and why
(This is almost impossible to answer: I have dozens (hundreds?) of dies collected over 15 years and used to use them all the time, but since coming back to crafting this summer I have started using stencils for the first time and they are my new obsession. So it is finely balanced, but at the end of the day I love the intricacy of dies so I think they will always be my favourite).

Sorry about the delete comment, Pauline. My first comment didn't show up and I thought it never posted, so I wrote it again. Then there were magically two comments so I deleted one :)
