Oriental pink & gold


Hi everyone, there's only 1 more work day before he Easter break!
Hubby and my sons are off camping at Bluesfest for 5 days while I 'll look after the animals, feed the chooks and do loads of housework...or maybe not!

This card used up a scrap made with the  faux stained glass watercolor technique, and a scrap of brushos spattered with gold watercolour paint. I think the strip has an oriental feel.

The challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More is anything goes.

At Addicted to CAS the code word is delicate.
I think these butterflies look delicate even though they are solid.

At The Card Concept there is this gorgeous inspiration pic. I was inspired by the pretty pinks and white. My card fits the clean and layered category.

Edited to add: Thanks for the reminder about the butterfly challenge Mrs. A!
The theme is a butterfly + M for margins and an optional colour of mint.
My watercoloured panel fits as a border or margin.

Grab My Button.

Memory Box moonlight butterfly die; brushos; Kuretake gansai and Finetec gold watercolour paints; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
