Distress Oxide Butterflies.

Hi everyone, these butterflies were diecut from a panel inked with distress oxides and gently spritzed with water. I like how the colours are soft and pastel.

I'm linking up to the CAS watercolor challenge where the theme is butterfly.

I didn't want to risk stamping on this embossed background, so I stamped and heat embossed on tissue paper and glued it onto the base with multi medium matte glue. Tissue paper is the theme at the CAS mix up card challenge, so I'm linking up there. (Not sure if my tissue paper is enough of a focus to qualify though.)

My elements are dry embossing and die cutting to go along with the stamping and tissue paper.

I'm also joining the anything goes with stamping challenge at Craft Stamper,

Take It, Make It Challenge

and the anything goes challenge at Bizzy Bec's Store Blog.
