Brusho Butterflies

Here is another card I made for our Colourful Butterflies theme at the 

We are so happy to have a Guest Designer joining us too.  
Guest Designer:  Amy (Miss_Lomax_Art)

Such a pretty gallery this month.

This card was a simple, quick to create one using some Brushos and this beautiful butterfly stamp.

I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock and placed it into my Misti.  I positioned my Collage Butterfly over my cardstock, then I sprinkled some Brushos onto the dry paper.  I sprayed the stamp with water and pressed into the Brushos, activating the colours.
I used a wet paintbrush to spread any wet, leftover ink onto any areas that didn't get colour and stamped again.
As that dried, I took another piece of white cardstock and scored two lines, one at the top and one down further where I was going to position the butterfly, then stamped the simple sentiment under the scoring. 
Finally, I glued on the butterfly panel and then glued it all onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
I hope you will come and join us!

More Favourite Flowers- The Flower Challenge

Good Morning
Here is another card I made for 

Our theme this month is to stamp with your favourite flower.
We are also welcoming our talented Guest Designer 
Therese Calvird from Lost in Paper.

We have another PRIZE to give away to our lucky winner again this month. The lovely Michelle from Clearly Besotted is sponsoring us and giving away an e-gift card worth £20.
Michelle has some gorgeous stamps/die/stencils, do check out her website/blog if you haven't already.

It is really hard for me to pick the flowers that are my favourite as I have so many!
I decided to make a little garden scene using some daisy silhouettes.  I do love seeing the white heads of my daisies in the early summer.  They seem to come and go too quickly for my liking.

So onto my card details.
I began with a stenciled background.  I laid my Groovy Flower stencil over a piece of heavy white cardstock and rubbed over it with some shaving cream that I had tinted with my Distress Re-inkers.  Using an old credit card, I spread the inky shaving cream over this  stencil in a thin layer.  I set that aside to dry before scrapping off the excess cream to reveal this lovely pattern.
I placed the dried bkg. into my Misti then stamped over it with the Grid Background to add more interest.
Using more of the black ink, I stamped the daisies and the sentiment.
I simply mounted it onto another piece of white cardstock then onto a plain white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by to take a look.
I hope you come and play along with us.
