30 Day Coloring Challenge

If you have not heard already, Kathy R from TheDailyMarker started her 4th 30-day coloring challenge yesterday.  This a great way to get inspired by coloring something everyday, even if it is just for 5 minutes.  You can check out all the details on Kathy's blog.  There is also a blog hop today with prizes. Of course I am a day late getting started.  Actually I started yesterday, but didn't get finished until today.  I started to make one card and ended up with three.
I got the butterfly cover plate die from the recent PaperTreyInk release and really wanted to use it.  I cut it out a few times, used it as a stencil for coloring with distress inks and did different combinations of layering.  I stamped the sentiments on  vellum and embossed them with clear embossing powder.  Below is a list of the products that I used.

The first one is die cut with white cardstock and layer with fun foam slightly off set from the stenciled coloring beneath.  I used the negative pieces from the die cut in black cardstock inlayed in the background.  

This is the die cut with black cardstock over the colors stenciled on white cardstock, again slightly offset.  

On the last one I used the positive image that I used as a stencil for coloring the first two and layered it over black cardstock.  Can't decide which one I like best.  Let me know your favorite in the comments.
