HLS September Watercolour Challenge

Hi everyone! Woah, September already?? It's a big month for me - Father's Day on the 2nd and my dad's 60th birthday on the 11th. I am also starting to plan my grandson's 1st birthday party which is in November - can you believe he is nearly 1????

Over at Happy Little Stampers we kick off a new month with our Watercolour Challenge.

Anything Goes but you may like to play along with our twist and use a butterfly or two or three...

Here are my cards (yes I made two lol) -

For my first card I placed a stencil on watercolour card, sprinkled turquoise brusho, misted with water, then lifted the stencil. I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process.

I stamped and die cut my butterfly from some left over card that I flipped the stencil over and pressed the ink on to it. 

I rounded off the edges of this card for a bit of interest.

I would like to enter this card over at -

My second card was created in the same manner but I used orange and yellow brushos.

Supplies Used

Here is a video tutorial that I created a while back to show you how to use your watercolours with stencils.

I hope to see you over at the challenge blog!


  1. Hi Kylie,
    I love the blue color, I thought that the first card would be the obvious favorite for me, but it turned out that the second, yellow card is equally beautiful. The background using stencil looks very interesting.

  2. What lovely backgrounds Kylie and the bold black butterflies and sentiments really pop.I remember you showing us this on the retreat!
    Enjoy your busy September.
