Beautiful


The new game is up on the AAA Cards Challenge Blog. This time it's "Anything Goes".  I am still playing with my Brushos and loving the magic. I used the mono printing technique for my creation. I had used the honeycomb stencil and Brushos on another project, and made sure that I got paint on the negative.  I flipped the stencil and pressed it on to the watercolor paper, and got this beautiful effect. Once dry, I sprayed the entire panel lightly with Tattered Angels Gold spray mist. I die cut the butterfly (PTI) from velum and gold adhesive paper (PTI), popped it up on the card and bent the wings upward a bit.


The sentiment is from Concord & 9th's Beautiful Words and Beautiful You dies. I am loving learning and trying new things, and I'm very pleased with the way this one turned out.

Please head on over to the AAA Cards Challenge Blog and check out the designs of my fabulously talented fellow DT members. Leave them some love, then create something wonderful and link up to our challenge. Our sponsor this week is Happy Little Stampers, with a $20.00 gift certificate for the challenge winner.


I am linking my card to the following challenges:
