Blue butterflies with yellow & black


Hi, these are some of the butterflies I painted with twinkling H2O's on the weekend.

I'm linking up to the challenge at Just Add Ink where they have a colour challenge.

I don't have a lot of Stampin Up inks so I hope these colours are close enough.

I used a new die that I got a few months ago, just had to have it but hadn't even tried it out yet!
It's Lucienne Tile from Memory Box. 
Darnell over at djkardcreations is celebrating her 600+ followers with an NBUS challenge.
To use some of your stash of never before used schtuff! So I'm linking up there too and will probably stay for a while as Darnell's blog is full of witty stories and lots of inspiring cards and techniques.

I'm also linking up to the challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More where the theme is to make your mark, using pencils, markers, chalks or paints on your project. I pained my butterflies with a few pots of twinkling H2O paint.

Materials used: 
Memory Box cocoa bean stamp and lucienne tile die; twinkling H2Os; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy, x

Love this MB die! Your soft yellow on the tile worked so well with the pretty blues of those butterflies. This might work in Mrs. A's butterfly challenge too! Terrific card, Cathy. TFS & Hugs
