Highlight stencil

Hello there,
Welcome to my blog and follow my work on social media. 

I am back with one of my favourite techniques which is highlighting stencils. I have done this many times and love working on this. The best way to create colourful cards is when you use stencils which has bigger colouirng space like the one I used here. For this card, I outlines the butterfly with a pencil and I used alcohol markers to colour first. I used colour pencils to give some depth and shading. I used a black marker to add an outline to the butterfly and this enhances the colours. Its a very very simple card and the focus stays on the technique. I finished the card, with some gemstones and a sentiment.
