I hope you had a nice weekend!
Pretty quiet around here ... still cold, still snowing ...
what better to do than stay in where it's warm and craft!!
A friend told me about a new challenge blog called Butterfly Challenge
and I was anxious to check it out and play along!
Their debut challenge is BUTTERFLIES and FLOWERS!
Now THAT is right up my alley!
ALSO, the new challenge this week at Classy Cards 'n Such is to use Twinkling H2Os so that's what I've used for my 'coloring' agent on this card. Be sure to check out the line of fabulous H2Os that Beverly carries in her store HERE.
Mind you, this is a style far from my regular 'vintage', 'lots of layers' style but I'm trying
to create using different styles and techniques during these cold winter days.
Then I used my LuminArte' Twinkling H2Os and a small artist brush to paint in the colors of the butterflies... yep, right over top of the stippling. I have used the following H2O colors: Sky Blue, Pink Azalea and Bougainvillea. The camera just doesn't do the beautiful finish justice! I've shared a couple of closeups (which you can click on to enlarge even more) to give you an idea how gorgeous these paints can be.

I hope you've enjoyed my card today!
Using stencils is a RARE thing for me ... especially on a card.
Using Twinkling H2Os ... something I haven't done in a VERY long time.
And a SINGLE LAYER card ... nearly unheard of for me!
Okay I admit it ...
I couldn't do the single layer thing so I cut my A6 card panel that I had used to do my stippled stencil on ... matted it with black cs and placed it on an Old Olive Green 5x7 card base.
You got me!! LOL!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
Wishing you a F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S week ahead!
