Make It Monday #282 with Betsy Stenciled Watercolored Backgrounds

My card for this week's MIM was a bit of a challenge for me.  I was trying to use the Butterfly cover plate, making my own stencil and that just didn't work too well. Her's is much softer.  I usually like things bold but I felt this was too bold.  So softened a bit with a MFT Stitched Square vellum
Used Vintage Lines in CP inks.
Echo Park leaf stencil.

Merry Monday #243 with Kathy

Kathy always seems to stump me with her challenges and she didn't disappoint again this week.  She asked us to make a Christmas scene and you think that would be easy, but wow I worked on this for 3 or 4 hours before I came up with this.  It went in so many directions before I actually got something I liked.  Great challenge Kathy.
  Come join me and the rest of the team 
to get a head start on those Christmas cards.
