Turquoise butterfly


Hi, I stamped and fussy cut some butterflies a while ago and I've been painting some with twinkling H2Os.
 I was  inspired by a few challenges.

  Less is More has a touch of turquoise as it's colour theme.
I mixed a couple of H2O pots to create as close to turquoise as I could get. 

At The Card Concept the theme is to use a butterfly. I think my card fits the clean and simple category.
The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is celebrating their 5th year of challenges and the theme is happy birthday.

Seize the birthday is an anything goes birthday with the option of buttons and rhinestones as a topping.

At Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge, the theme is springtime at last and to use yellow in your project with a butterfly.

Materials used: Hero Arts butterfly stamp; Memory Box woodland branch & fresh foliage dies; flower punch; twinkling H2Os; bling and sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting, have a great week,
Cathy x

  3. Hello Cathy, welcome to my challenge and thank you for fluttering by. I love the butterfly done in the H20's. I have them but never think to get them out to use and have certainly never thought to mix the colours to get a different shade. (Must think outside of the box more!). I like the CAS look of your card and the little yellow flowers just offset the
    vibrant butterfly perfectly. hope to see you again. Hugs Mrs A. (butterfly challenge).
