Less is More #418 - Recipe

Happy Saturday! Time for a new challenge over at Less is More. We have a FUN challenge for you -

Here are my cards -

Card #1

I used different shades of blue archival ink for my background (Splat stamp from HLS Mixed Media Fun set). I embossed my butterfly and coloured it with Zig Watercolour pens, also in different shades of blue.

Card #2

Using a panel of watercolour paper I used my water pens with brushos to add colour drying in between. I used clean water to 'paint' the drips so the colour would run. Would you believe I used the same splat stamp that I used in my first card on this card? I picked up brusho colour and just randomly stamped and dried between colours. It wasn't meant to give a clear impression of the stamp, it was just another way to get the layers/texture.

I hope to see you over at LIM!

I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges -
Card #1 - Crafty Calendar Challenge (Add a Butterfly), Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday (Bugs, Blossoms, and/or butterflies), Sparkle Forum Challenge (Spring is in the air), STAMPlorations (Stamps and Flight)
Card #2 - Seize the Birthday (Anything Goes), Creative Craft Cottage (CAS), STAMPlorations CAS Challenge (Anything Goes)


Thanks for popping in today, have a great weekend :)


  1. These two cards are gorgeous Kylie and it is brilliant to see how the same theme can result in two completely different styles. I'm in awe of your skill with the brushos and inks! That second card is gloriously inky yet you managed to make it without a bit of 'muddiness' creeping in. Fab! The sweet butterfly card is so pretty in those shades of blue too. Have a fab week, even with all this lockdown stuff going on. xx

  2. I love both your cards but especially the second one. The colours you've used are fab.

  5. Love your two takes on this challenge, Kylie ! I will never get tired of seeing this butterfly. And there again, it is beautiful above these splashes. And what a clever idea for your second card, Brushos always make wonders ! Hope you're well and safe at home.

  6. Both are so creative and beautifully done! The butterfly card is my favorite!
