Social Butterfly Birthday

Hello my friends.

Here's a card we did in class last week.


We stamped the butterfly from the Penny Black Social Butterfly set
on mixed media paper and heat embossed.

Watercolor was added to the wings with an Aqua Painter dipped
in the lid of an ink pad.

They had a choice of blue or yellow.


The CAS Watercolour Challenge is  open until the 24th.

I can join in at the Butterfly Challenge where
M is for..... Matching pair and/or the colour of  orange peel.



Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

So pleased to see you in the butterfly garden with this beautiful spotted butterfly. Yet another way to add colour with an ink pad. I love this idea. Thankyou for joining in. Hugs Mrs A.

Sigh, each time I see your beautiful cards I find an incredible need to go shopping again! This is gorgeous and love that stamp, Bonnie. Thank you too for all the inspiration!

Oh, Bonnie, I absolutely LOVE both of these cards! I would be hard pressed to choose one...even though I am a blue girl all the way! But WOW! I have this stamp set and now am so inspired to use it. I so need some CAS cards for thank-you notes, etc. Thanks for the inspiration, sweet friend! I love them! Hugs!

I just saw your cards on Pinterest. I love your cards with the PB stamp set. I have that set too - and I also have the "happy birthday" and "get well soon" stamps. I use them all the time!
