Flowers and Butterflies

Hi everyone. hope you all had a great Christmas. Mine was super. Both my kids were home and all my grandkids. This was the first time all the grandkids were together.What a special holiday.

Moving on. It's challenge #38 over at the friday mashup. Lisa wants us to do a sketch mashed up with water coloring.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project using the "Sketch".
  2. Or Make a project using "Watercoloring".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project using the "Sketch & Watercoloring" .

The supplies I'm using are Stampin Up:
Stamps;    Summer Solistice
Inks:    Tempting Turquoise, Regal Rose, Old Olive, So Saffron
Card Stock:  Regal Rose, Tempting turquoise, Whisper White
Top note Die, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Swiss dot Embossing folder
I also used a Cuddle Bug flower border embossing folder and a little glitter glue.

I cut the middle flower and Butterfly out and add them on with dimensional. I added a little glitter to the wings of the butterfly and the centers of the flowers. I colored my flowers and leaves using inks and a water brush and also stippled the edges with regal rose.
I hope you like my card. Be sure to check the friday mashup blog for some great ideas. 
Happy Holiday and have fun stampin!!
