HLS March Watercolour Challenge

Hi everyone, it's time for a brand new Watercolour Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers.

I've had a busy week! I've just started my online University Degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice so I am very excited about that. I haven't had much time in the craft room but I try and make something as soon as I get the chance.

Anything Goes but I decided to use our optional twist.

I started with a panel of glossy card stock, sprinkled busho randomly, then misted with water. I left it to dry.

I used a new die from Lawn Fawn that pops up butterflies!

I used my MISTI to stamp my sentiment which is from the HLS Doodled Flowers set. You need to be VERY careful when stamping on glossy paper as the ink can smudge or you can slip when stamping.

That's it from me, I hope to see you over at the challenge blog.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Double 'D' Challenges (Pink and White + mood board)
Try It on Tuesdays (Powder it.. I used Brusho)
Creations in Pink (Anything Goes)


  1. Wow, hats off to you for undertaking a new adventure, and good luck!
    I love your misted panel, resulting in a bright and happy card.

  2. WOW. This is amazing. That new die must be fabulous. I was really impressed with your use of brushos and your perfect stamping on the glossy paper. It's a genuinely beautiful card and simply perfect for Try it on Tuesday's powder theme.

  3. A beautifully simple card, with great use of Brushos. I wish you well with your new course - it sounds fascinating!
    Thank you for joining us at Try it on Tuesday.

  9. Ooooh, what a gorgeous background, especially in pink! And a wonderful die that lifts the butterflies' wings. Your studies sound very interesting. If I had it to do all over again.... well, maybe... I need to live several lives to do all I'd like to do. Thank you so much for sharing your pretty butterfly card with us at Double D!

  10. Love the bold effect you get with brusho's on glossy paper and your colour choice just makes those quaint butterflies pop. So so pretty Kylie.

  11. A great card with wonderful splash effects. I like the cutted butterflies too.
