Hi everyone, I hope you've had a great week, I'm really looking forward to the weekend so I can have lots of r & r!!
I've had this yellow brushos panel for ages and thought it would suit the challenge at Anything but Cute where the crazy for colour mixed media theme requires vibrant colours.
I've used dylusions ink for the butterfly. I bought 4 bottles of blues and purples ages ago and this was my first go with them. I brushed over the embossing and edges with black soot distress ink. Darnell is hosting another challenge to use your never before used schtuff!
It's nearly closed so I'm just scraping in here!
At Simon Says Stamp Monday the theme is to make your own background. I love how brushos look different every time you use them and they make a great background for butterflies.
At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday the challenge is to use a bit o green.
I thought the tag needed some green to break up the orange and indigo. These pieces of diecuts are coloured with distress inks.
Loll & Bonnie have a new CAS mix up card challenge.
Brushos fit the watercolouring, and the other elements are dry embossing on the base and butterfly body, and diecuts I dread stamping on a nearly finished project so I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto tissue paper and glued it in place with glue n seal. (The brushos and DI on the leaves bled a little but I think it's ok.)
If this card isn't CAS enough please remove it,
