WWC279 – Helen’s Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello and welcome

Today it’s our new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday! This week I’m hosting the Challenge – All About Occasions.

My card features an old Hero Arts – Butterflies stamp (sadly, I don’t know the exact title), silver heat embossed on watercolour paper.

The area was wet and I had fun playing with my Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Dust powders.

Using water and a brush, some of the colour was removed from the butterflies and then clear Wink of Stella was added to give them some sparkle.

The sentiment is from a new to me Hero Arts – Flower Bouquet Pieces set, also silver heat embossed.

I love the colours on this card and those beautiful butterflies that seem to be flying off the card!! Sadly, the photo doesn’t do justice to the colours and shine! 😦

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

I hope your enjoying some crafty time.

Stay safe and have a good day

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
