Watercolour Butterfly

Hi! Here's another flowery butterfly, this time inspired by the gorgeous image in the current Fusion Card Challenge. Instead of a blue butterfly on the flowers, I added the flowers to the butterfly:

This is the Fusion challenge inspirational photo - I LOVE the bright, summery colours!

Floral Butterfly

Hi! I've been working on a card inspired by the ColourQ challenge:

I used a butterfly stencil and ink dusters to create the background with the lighter blues, stamped the flower images, and then coloured the large flowers with a water brush. I added yellow gems to the large flowers and gold Liquid Pearls to the small ones, to introduce the yellow. Here's my card:

I'm also entering this into the Allsorts challenge: "Blue as the Ocean"

Hi! Here's another swirly butterfly card, in hot summer colours, made with one of my favourite digis from the Pink Cat Studio:

Birthday Fishes

Ok, it's a bit of a silly card... but I was playing around with the stencil and then wasn't sure what to do with it. I cut out some rough fish shapes and they looked quite cute, so I printed out out the sentiments, ink dusted them and cut them out into fish shapes.

I'm entering this into the following challenges (I had to google 'nautical' to make sure it meant anything sea-related as well as boats, etc!):
