Bright Rosa

Cosmic Shimmer butterflies

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I’ve had Cosmic Shimmer Luna paste for a while now, but I rarely use it. I almost bought some more Nuvo embellishment mousse at the weekend, but decided to try the Luna paste again before pressing that ‘Buy’ button and I’m glad I waited! I’d forgotten how shimmery the Luna paste is. And unlike my embellishment mousse, they were still in perfect condition!

I applied a mix of the paste to a card base and left it to dry overnight. I then cut out some Bright Rosa butterflies and arranged them as per the sketch before adding a few pearls for their ‘bodies’!

The embossed sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

Thank for stopping by!

Snowflake wishes

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

I had fun playing with products with a lot of different companies for my take – the large snowflake is by Bright Rosa whilst the smaller snowflakes are from My Favorite Things. I used a heart stencil from Simon Says stamp with a baby wipe to lift ink from the blended strip and stamped a sentiment from an older Penny Black set.

I’m also entering this into the current CAS Stencil challenge where the challenge is to use a baby wipe.

Thank for stopping by!

One in a million

Hi Everyone!

I’m playing along with the current colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. This week, we have a couple of shades of purple and yellow…. hmm a tricky combo !

I created a few ink blended panels and cut them with butterfly dies from Bright Rosa. I then masked off a section of my base card and stamped an image from the Garden Treasures set by Julie Hickey. The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted.

Thank for stopping by!

Flutterby Butterfly

Happy Friyay friends!

Today I’m playing along with the current Color Throwdown challenge which has another gorgeous combo – raspberry, lavender, green and kraft.

I used a lot of new supplies – in fact they only arrived this morning! The butterfly die is from Paula Pascual’s new brand, Bright Rosa. I bought the ‘Butterflies Border’ set of 8 dies and couldn’t wait to play with it. After cutting the large image from white cardstock, I used a large die from the set which cuts wings/bases for four butterflies in one go – super quick and easy! I then blended some distress ink (picked raspberry and mowed lawn) and a Gina K ink (lovely lavender) to create my colourful butterfly wings/bases. I added a few splatters of gold paint for that touch of shimmer!

I adhered the butterfly wings/bases to the back to the butterfly border and added a few glitter butterfly bodies that I cut using dies from other butterfly die sets. I then stuck the image to a kraft base that I’d embossed using the Seamless Wave embossing folder from Gemini.

To complete my card, I added a sentiment from Tonic Studios and a few green dots.

Thanks for stopping by!
