Stencils for A Blog Named Hero

Hi, all!  There's a new challenge at A Blog Named Hero today - Stencils!  I'm a beginner with stencils - I only began using them just recently, and I don't have very many.  I do, however, have some Hero Arts/Sizzix dies, a Big Shot and some acetate, and that's all you need to make your own stencil!  I made this particular stencil in January (you can see the card I made HERE), but I thought I'd use it again to make this card.

 All the ladies at A Blog Named Hero are playing with some awesome goodies from the Gossamer Blue March Scrapbook Kit this month - I used some patterned paper from Webster's Pages/Allison Kreft Designs "Sprinkled with Love" collection, a Brilliance Dew Drop Ink Pad in Galaxy Gold (LOVE!!), and the little enamel hearts from My Mind's Eye "now and then" collection.
I stuck my home-made stencil down, and applied the gold ink directly from the ink pad to the butterflies.  I heat set the gold ink before stamping over them with the butterflies from the Hero Arts "Antique Flowers and Butterflies" set in HA Raspberry Jam shadow ink.  I stamped the sentiment from "Made with Love" in Hero Hues black ink, and then stuck on some of the enamel hearts. 
 I hope you pay along with our Stencil It Challenge - make sure you visit A Blog Named Hero and check out what the rest of the design team have been stenciling!

As always, our amazing sponsor, Simon Says Stamp, is offering a prize!

Thanks for visiting, and thanks so much to Gossamer Blue

Have a great day ;)
