Alphabet Challenge- Insects
Simon Says- anything Goes
Butterfly Challenge-The Letter Q-I used all colours-Quinacridone(magenta), Quick Sand (Light Yellow), Quince(Green)
I usually play with the blues and purples but this time, I enjoyed creating the background using color bursts in orange, magenta and yellow. I spritzed the colour dust with water to create the background You can see the pale yellow(love that firework the colorburst does especially when using yellow). I added pearl magenta with alcohol ink for the top half. I took a flower like stencil and laid part of it on 2 corners opposite from one another. Taking my egg looking sponge, I took some dye ink colour in orange to create the effect. I had played with distress inks and alcohol inks a while back, in the greens, so I took 2 butterfly die cuts and cut them out running it through my sizzex. I layered the card in the colours named above and glued the butterflies in place. I bought a new punch ( it was on sale and I love butterflies) and punched out 4 small butterflies to fill in the areas. I added Crystals and a border sticker I coloured in green, to finish the effect.
My summer vacation is coming to an end and will return to work tomorrow. I have truly enjoyed my garden which my hubby created. We have many flowers that bring bees, butterflies and hummingbirds(I have not seen one but my hubby has). I promise to post some pictures of my (not so) secret garden.
Wishing you a very happy day and week ahead.
