Hello, thank you for visiting me. This is the quickest post ever as I want to enter the Paperartsy challenge which is Aqua and I only have a short while before it closes!
The background is made smooshing Broken China Distress Oxide on my craft sheet, spritzing with water then dragging watercolour card through it. I added drops of water then dried with a heat gun then dabbed it in remaining ink. When dry I stencilled through Foiled Again mini stencil by Stamplorations with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink then gave a spritz with Abominable Snowman Glimmer Mist. When dry I added all the stamping in black Versafine using the PaperArtsy stamp set EKC02. The butterflies are cut from a piece of watercolour card coloured with Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks and water using the smallest die from Sizzix Vintage Butterfly Bigz Die. I then ran the butterflies through an embossing folder - it came free with a magazine years ago. The sentiment is cut using a Spellbinder die from Sentiments Three. The final touch was Orange Peel and Eucalyptus Stickles. I used an orange mat and a black card base. I made it so last minute, the Stickles is still wet!
I would like to enter the follow challenges:
PaperArtsy - Aqua - I was inspired by Claire Snowdon's post Here - Claire's stencilled background sung to me and the added butterflies and flowers!
Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge - Matching Pairs and/or the colour Orange Peel
Country View Challenges - Things With Wings
Stamping Sensations - Anything with Flowers - in my haste to post this I forgot to link up to this challenge! Luckily I remembered before it ran out! Its one of the ones I had made it for - silly me!
These are all fabulous Challenges!
Thank you again for visiting me, I must dash! Please excuse any errors! Take care. Christine xxx
