CAS Watercolour July 2017 - #2

Hello friends.  While looking through a drawer full of wood mounted stamps, I found a butterfly stamp that I don't think I've ever used, and since there's still a few days left to play with the CAS Watercolour  challenge, I thought I would try this stamp out!

The stamp is from Savvy Stamps and this is what I came up with:

I started with a small piece of water color cardstock and water colored some orange from my Kuretake Gansai Tambi (#33) paints.  After it was dry I stamped my butterfly image in black...the stamp is made to look like it is already water colored and I love the look it gave over the orange!  Next I splattered a little bit of gold.  Here's a closer up:

I mounted this to a black layer and then layered it onto piece of "ghosted" paper I had made with DOX inks and a Gina Marie Designs stencil.  I layered it all on a 5 x 5 card base and added a simple embossed sentiment from PTI's Choose Joy stamp set.  I don't feel like this is my normal style at all, but I really like how it turned out!  Kinda artsy!!  :0)

For this card I water colored, stamped, stenciled, splattered, and embossed.

This challenge is open till the 24th, so still time to play along.  Check out all the beautiful inspiration and then play along right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
