Spring butterfly, stencilling and brushos.

Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at CAS Stencil where the theme is to use a stencil with embossing pastes, gels, creams etc. Lots of fun!
 There are lots of how to videos on the blog and some fabulous cards from the DT to inspire you.
Hope you can play along!

I taped a stencil down onto some watercolour paper and applied some grit texture paste with a spatula.
When it was dry, I sprinkled on some green brushos, spritzed with water and moved the panel around so that the colour flowed around the stencil details.
 I decided to dab a paper towel on top and that removed a lot of the colour from the texture paste but it had saturated the rest of the watercolour paper.

The butterfly was stamped with versafine ink, clear embossed, fussy cut and coloured with Inktense pencils.

The sentiment is from a retired set by Annabelle Stamps, also clear heat embossed.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Allsorts where the challenge is to use yellow.

Grab our logo

Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge where it's anything goes watercolour with the option of bright. My elements are brushos and Inktense pencils.

What a great result using the paste and the brushos on your stenciling Cathy! That's what I love about these challenges - you try things you might not have thought of to do before! So pretty in the design and color. Your butterfly is beautiful - at first I thought it was something you purchased and attached - wonderfully colored! xx

Gorgeous card, Cathy! I love how you added Brushos to the texture paste (I'll have to try that) and your butterfly is absolutely stunning! Beautiful coloring with your Inktense Pencils, too...the contrast of yellow and black is really striking!

What a great way to colour your card Cathy! The brushos would flow around the paste and really intensify the colours in the spaces. Very cool! I love the bright green with the beautiful design of your stencil. Your butterfly is gorgeous! xx
