Dragons Dream TIO #169 - The letter "N" and a Stencil

This time over at the Dragons Dream TIO Helen has chosen the theme, she would love to see the letter "N" and "Stencils" on your tag, along with at least one real stamped image.
I've been playing with watercolour card again inking up and dripping water on to take some ink back off again, love how you get a different pattern every time. I then stippled Picked Raspberry through my stencil, added the IndigoBlu butterfly, and used a paintbrush to add a little more ink around the edges. Love the alpha grunge font from Kaisercraft, it's so useful and lives on my desk!
So there we are again another two stamp, two ink pad piece just to show you don't need much to start out stamping!!
We would love you to join in our challenge, just please remember to use at least one real stamp on your tag.

A gorgeous pink butterfly tag to start my monochrome challenge off with. I love the random pattern for the background and the use of the letter N is perfect to go with the butterfly. Thankyou for fluttering by again. Hugs Mrs a. (butterfly challenge).

What a lovely tag Elizabeth and with a technique i haven't used in ages. I really must search the old memory box and make a list of various techniques I like.
Good to see you again, if it is only in Blogland.
Hugs, Neet xx

Wow - that's some full on Picked Raspberry (which I always end up typing Pickled Raspberry!)... Love the bleaching effect from the water - I never tire of it either! Gorgeous butterfly too...
