ATCAS #61 - SHOWERS

Happy Saturday!!

Gee the time is going fast. Today starts a brand new challenge over at Addicted to CAS. The very talented Shana is our hostess for this fortnight and here is the code word she has chosen for us -


I had lots of ideas for this one but my card came from something that nearly went in the bin!

Here is my card -


I was practising with my Brushos after embossing the butterfly from Inspired by Stamping. Actually I had a number of things going on the one piece of watercolour paper and when I had finished I tossed it to the side and forgot about it.

I happened back into my craft room and picked up the now dry piece and went to throw it in the bin. Something made me look at the 'mess' I had created a little differently. I die cut around the butterfly using a Stitched rectangle die from Lil' Inkers and realised that my butterfly looked to be sitting on a window with rain coming down the glass. Well, that's my interpretation and I'm sticking with it, lol. So, I added a few raindrops from PTI and there you have it. 

This time I had used my brushos with a brush. I sprinkled some crystals onto my craft mat and then sprayed a tiny amount of water to get them activated. Then I could pick up the colour with my brush and start colouring.

Now, we have an amazing sponsor for you this fortnight -


Check out the challenge blog for more details regarding the prize!


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Inky Impressions - Spring is in the Air
Mod Squad - Butterfly Focal
Deep Ocean Challenge - Things with Wings


Thanks so much for looking xx

The blue and purple together look amazing and so cool you saved this from the bin! I threw away 2 failed attempts at water colouring. I don't usually do that but they were a mess x
