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.

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!

This is a very cool looking result. I love the sounds of that technique. I wonder how it would work out with Color Bursts. Something to experiment with. You are always a great inspiration.

The scored lines work beautifully to frame that pretty butterfly Karen and the Brusho colours are so hot and spicy. A great look for this fabulous card. x

You enabled me to buy this stamp a while back and I loved using it for a class. Now I need to try it with this technique! What an amazing card, my friend!

Gorgeous image Karen, especially with the bright sunny colours of summer. I admire the different ways you use a product. Your card is amazing. The dotted lines from the bug are sweet. You sent me one of the bugs years ago but I couldn't figure out how to get a straight line. You mentioned just a little while ago about using it with your scor-pal. Light bulb moment for me! :) xx
