Butterflies on brushos.


Hi everyone, my stepdad asked me to make a thank you card for the nurses involved in his chemo therapy. He wanted something with butterflies, but on a bigger card.
Luckily I had some 5x7 inch bases to use. It's a bit trickier composing something on a bigger base although this die, which is quite large, fits better than on my regular bases!

For the background I sprinkled brushos in a couple of blues onto watercolour paper and spritzed with water. The butterflies were fussy cut and coloured with inktense pencils. The sentiment diecut is embossed with black sparkle powder, it's nice and glittery in real life.

I'm linking up to the anything goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

At Stamplorations, the focus is on sentiments.

I'm also joining a new to me challenge Make My Monday, where the theme is wet or dry embossing.
I've used wet embossing on the butterflies and the diecut sentiment.
