Hi there! I have two cards to share today. First up is for The Flower Challenge's sketch challenge and I'm also playing along with the Showers and/or Flowers challenge at the Simon Says Wednesday challenge. I sprinkled and spritzed some Brushos onto watercolor paper and then stamped the Winnie & Walter flower and leaves over the colours. I fussy cut them and popped them up on foam tape over the strips of glitter tape, added a Hero Arts sentiment and some gems and was done! I'm pleased with how this flower came out. On my first attempt I used way too much powder and water and the colours were so dark that the flower didn't show up. I really need to devote a bit more time to playing with these powders.

Next is a card for the Time Out photo inspiration challenge. I love this picture and the feeling of movement from those gorgeous pink butterflies. I dug out some My Favourite Things and Memory Box butterflies and plenty of Rose Red paper and set to work die cutting. I had intended on a much more random placement of the butterflies but before I knew it I ended up with this symmetrical pattern so I just went with it. A few of the butterflies are layered and the central ones have gems. I like how it's kind of CAS and busy all at the same time.
