Brusho Butterflies #2

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.

This is the second card I have made with the butterflies.

I used a pre-cut aperture card that's been lurking in my stash for years. It's only a single fold card so I backed the untidy bits on the inside after assembling the card with a piece of matching card. The paper  that I have placed inside the aperture is the kitchen roll that I blotted the original sheet of brusho background with.

I stamped a "wiry words" sentiment and added the butterfly and a couple of gems.

I am sharing this with

Well how rude of blogger I was just getting into my stride too! I was about to say and doesn’t it go spiffingly with the jasmine card blank. Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel with me again for this challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

Your paper towel background is amazing, Jane! The texture is so clear that I thought it was a piece of wool fabric! The Brusho butterfly is gorgeous and has so much impact. Thank you so much for sharing this beauty at CAS Mix Up!
