I've been using my Brushos water color crystals again. This time I washed color into the background of a premade card by shaking the water color crystal on the card front and then washing over it with a large brush loaded with water. I sprinkled each color, one at a time, drying with a heat gun in between the colors.
I made this second card using the same technique. The butterfly was die cut out of blue cardstock using my Memory Box Willoughby Butterfly Wings die and embossed with clear embossing powder. I applied embossing ink and powder, melting each layer, at least three times which creates a very even, dimensional look to the die cut. This die is intended to cut the wings out of the middle of a piece of paper leaving it intact to the paper to pop out. I simply snipped the ends and glued the body over the snipped ends. I so adore how this card turned out, I'm thinking of making another card set to put in the stash. I've already cut the butterflies and embossed them. Only some happy water coloring and I'll have another set. I'll try to get those done and the pictures edited and posted. See you soon.
