CAS Watercolour Butterfly Reminder

Time already for our CAS Watercolour July Butterfly Reminder by all the DT and our GD Eunji (Stamper EunjoA)

My Butterflies Dream Card

Close Up of the Watercolouring, EB Paste and Glitter!

I am still having fun from June's CAS Mix Up Embossing Paste/Gel Challenge and could not resist after smooshing with Distress Inks my background...adding a stenciled fern using Embossing Paste. While the paste was still wet I sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

While my fern was drying I used DOX scraps to punch out my butterflies.  I shaped with my bone folder and die cut the butterfly bodies and attached to the wings with glue.

Next I die cut my main image CUTplorations border and stamped my STAMPlorations sentiment using my MISTI and added 3 Nuvo drops.

I popped up my main image with fun foam and my butterflies with dimensionals.  Then attached to my Thick Whisper White CS.  I wish you could see all the pretty glitter.  A fun Summer time card.

Enjoy and hope you get to join us a CAS Watercolour.  You have until July 24th to play along.  Hugs.
