Beautiful Butterfly.....

Today's card .....
CAS Mix Up challenge is to use tissue paper, stamping and my choice.
I am learning that there is so much you can do with this medium.
The Aqua goes so well with the tones of brown.
The inspiration came from the first post and the pinterest board 
I used Lindy sprays for the background, with the crumpled up tissue paper.
After it had dried I heat embossed copper over some of the raised parts.

The butterfly has been stamped and water-coloured, 
with the Lindy's using a paintbrush straight from the bottles.

The butterfly was fussy cut and the frame with a stitched die cut.
A little stamping on the background and also the sentiment to finish.
A detailed photo of the beautiful bling from the Lindy sprays 
and the embossed heated copper
I have fun with this technique and combining the aqua with the browns.
CAS Watercolour Challenge is Butterfly, which also inspired my choice
of embellishment.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog..
I really do appreciate it x
