On The Wing

Good morning crafters, it's Friday and me again :o)  I hope you're all well and enjoyed the lovely weather we had this week.
Sorry but at the time of this post the Brusho's are sold out.....please pop back to the website for updates

Today's card is my first using Brusho's in earnest so you can see I've been very cautious not to overdo it, not quite at Lisa, Kirsten and Karen's level yet, but I'll get there :o)
 I started with a 6" x 6" card and matted it with black card from my stash.  I wanted to use the technique of putting the Brusho's onto the card before spritzing and used the Purple, Yellow and Aqua Marine, I then spritzed the card lightly to see the effect before spritzing again to increase the colour.
I then used the Imagination Craft Vine Trellis Stencil and watered down some yellow Brusho onto a tile and sponged through the stencil in various places onto the card.
The next step was to stamp my images which I used the Stampendous Butterflies and stamped them onto some watercolour card and dried with a heat gun before colouring in with Water Colour Markers. 
Here are the elements.
I cut out all the butterflies, and decided where they would go then stamped the images again over the background card.  At this stage I decided not to use the blue and red butterfly and instead stamped the yellow and purple butterfly again (see card above)  I then used Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue to place the butterflies over the stamped images on the background.
Here's a close up:
It was then finished off with the lovely little sentiment from Cardio Combinations.  On reflection I think I should have added a little bit of sparkle to the card, maybe on the butterfly wings, you may see the updated card at the next class :o)
Once again I hope you've enjoyed my simple little card and look forward to another, perhaps more adventurous card next time :o)
Thanks for dropping by
Love Jan -x-



  1. The butterflies looks so real it would be a shame to glitter them! It's a beautiful card, just as it is.

  2. What beautiful butterflies and I love the sentiment. x

  3. Beautiful card Jan, the butterflies look wonderful.
