Butterfly with Doily Stencil.

It's the 2nd week of my Butterfly Challenge.
Theme is to use a doily + your butterfly on your project.
Here's what I have made  for further  inspiration for you.
 

Take one plastic doily stencil.
This was a gift sent to me so have no makers name .

I had a picture from my first art class which was the obligatory
Still life Apple which you can see here.
Time to repurpose I think
  I gave the canvas a good coating of  'Blue Babe' tester pot paint to cover.
Placed the stencil where I wanted it and then used a pencil to draw round the lines.
Removed the stencil and filled in using  'Enchanted Eden'  tester pot.
'Bullrushes'  panel stencil is by  Imagination crafts.
Again I drew through  the design with a pencil and then filled in using
 Josonja's  'Burnt Umber' acrylic artist paint. 
Butterfly is by Dufex decoupage topper in fine metallic.
I purchased my sheets from Pinflair.

Close up of butterfly which is really pretty.
I have purchased several sheets of these as prizes.
Hope I have inspired you to join in this time.

Your project is beautiful (especially with those cat tails). Thank you for the inspiration and showing me how to more creatively utilize my stencils! Truly beautiful. On a side note, thank you for your recent thoughtful comment.
