Butterflies' Birthday Wish

Hi Friends!

Am here today with a simple birthday card with a bit of Watercolor play with Brusho.

It's been a long time since I played with it!

  • Took watercolor cardstock and sprayed water with a mister.
  • Added the Lime green Brusho pigment. One of my favorite of all for the pigments it holds : Green, Yellow and a dash of blue.
  • Heat set when the pigments moved and formed a desired look,
  • Using TCW 'Art is' stencil, stenciled over the colored area with Prima's Platinum crackle paste.
  • Being a thin font style, the crackles aren't that prominent. Nevertheless I love the metallic sheen of the platinum paste.
  • Stamped the sentiment from Inspired By Stamping 'Wishing you' using memento black ink onto the focal panel.
  • Using Ranger White EP , heat embossed the butterflies from Stamplorations Trendy Butterflies2  onto Vellum.
  • Fussy cut those butterflies and added to the focal panel.
  • This panel is trimmed and mounted onto a baby blue top fold 4x6" card base.
  • Few clear dew droplets added as final touch.
Hope you like it!

Happy Crafting!
