Birthday Butterfly

 The best thing about using brushos is that no two creations will be identical. The amount of sprinkled flakes, the amount of water, and the tilt of the paper are just a few of the variables that come into play when creating with this medium. I wanted a soft background for this butterfly. I think it worked. Thoughts?

   Beautiful Day

   Balmy Blue A-2
   Watercolor 5-1/4 x 4
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Jet Black StazOn
   Brusho Crystal Colour

   Watercolor With Brushos

   Basic Rhinestone Jewels
   Fast Fuse (Or Favorite Adhesive)

First, I created my background using my brusho flakes on a watercolor panel. I played around with the amount of flakes, water, and tilting of paper. I also used a paper towel to soak up water and color if it was getting out of control. When I was happy with it, I set it aside to dry.

FYI: I always make several backgrounds at one time. Remember that it is easier to add more color than to try and dilute the color.

I then stamped my large, bold butterfly, and added a few rhinestones for the body.

I stamped the sentiment on the top of the panel.

Lastly, I adhered the panel to the card base, and added the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.
