Brusho Butterflies #1

Yesterday I made a Brusho background using purple and two shades of green sprinkled onto wet heavyweight watercolour paper. I left it to dry overnight ready to play with today.
The butterfly stamp I used is an Indigo Blu one that I've had for about 5 years. I stamped it onto the brusho background several times to take advantage of  the different coloured patches formed by the brushos, then fussy cut all of the images.

Here is the first card I made with the resulting butterflies.

I used a die cut and embossed floral frame (not hand made, I'm afraid, it came in a Craftwork Cards goodie bag many rears ago) and added gold liquid pearls to the centres of the flowers, then mounted it over a square of patterned corrugated kraft and stuck it to the base card. I added the butterfly  to the centre of the frame using 3-D adhesive. Next I die cut the word "Happy" from dark green card and gave it 3 layers of heat embossing using Versamark ink and Mint Pearls embossing powder.

I am sharing this with

Your brusho butterfly is totally gorgeous! I like the way you've rested her on the corrugation and given her a textured white frame so she can be the total star of this delightful card. Thanks so much for joining us again at Retro Rubber Challenge.
