When I woke up this morning I was determined to get on with some jobs that I needed to do before I started crafting! I managed to get some done but then the heavens opened and it absolutely chucked it down, the rain was bouncing off the pavements. So after lunch I had no choice but to get crafting (I guess I could have done the ironing!).
I've been trying out a lot of techniques recently and decided that today I would use some of the backgrounds I have created to make a card for a couple of challenges. This week's challenge at "Less is More" is a colour challenge - this was my starting point and I added in the theme for the TIME OUT challenge of "Celebration with the optional twist of butterflies". This is the card:
The butterflies were stamped on watercolour card that I had already coloured with splashes of green, yellow and turquoise artists inks, then cut out and any white space filled with distress ink. On the card base I coloured a small swatch of yellow and then mounted the butterflies in a group - I only stuck them at the bottom of the wings so that they have some dimension to them. The sentiment is from a sheet of rub ons.
I am entering the following challenges:
