Anything Goes August 2019 - Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends! Thanks for dropping by today. It's blog hop Wednesday for the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team and the theme is "Anything Goes" so we had free rein to create whatever we wanted! This card came together fairly quickly.

As usual, I can't get enough of the aqua pigments. I used Orange-Yellow, Magenta and Blue brushed across a panel of aqua pigment paper, and dried it with a heat tool before adding another layer. I splattered some of the Yellow-Orange and Magenta on the background when it was dry.

Then I heat embossed the butterflies with Alabaster EP onto aqua pigment paper and painted the same colors over it. I fussy cut the butterflies and slightly bent them in the middle for a 3D effect.

I took some of the watercolor paper flowers and the plain white paper flowers and used hot glue to adhere them to the card front, along with the butterflies. I stamped the sentiment from the Rock On stamp set in Marsala surface ink, and fussy cut them out. Using foam tape, I stuck them to the front of the card and put the whole thing on an Alabaster card base.

Hop along to Cassie's blog next to see her awesome project!
