Bright and Beautiful

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Family and Visitors

White rabbits! WOW 1st of September and only 6 days before Rick and I are off on our holiday.

A nice relaxed day planned today, I might do some crafting but will see how the mood takes me.

Today's card I have made using products from IndigoBlu for their current challenge.

Matted and layered teal coloured pearlescent card onto 7 x 7 white square base card.

The next layer was created thus:
a) painted Burning Bonfile acrylic paint with a baby wipe onto white card.
b) using Winberry Pie I stencilled the pattern from one of IndigoBlu's stencil around the page.
c) I added Kingfisher Blue metallic acrylic paint to the Ink Splat Butterfly stamp designed by Limor and stamped in the middle of the topper.
d) On a scrap piece of card I then stamped a couple of butterflies with the Kingfisher Blue, once dry cut them out and put to one side.
e) what was left of the paint I added water and added extra splats over the paper.
To finish off I matted and layered this onto the teal card and added the butterflies once they were cut out.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
