Butterfly Spray

Hello again my blogging friends and visitors.

I'm here with my second post of the day with a card that I've made for this week's challenge at 'Less is More.'  Their challenge this week is: Sprays/mists and here's my contribution:

I started by dabbing different shades of pink inks onto my craft mat and then spritzing it with water. I then took a piece of pale pink card and soaked up the mixed colours.  After drying the card with my heat gun, I then used punches and dies to create my various butterflies.
I took a paintbrush and dipped it into my Starburst Stains (Sweet Violet Purple Teal) and then splattered it onto a piece of white card to create a spray.   The butterflies were then placed in their required positions and the card was finished with a Stampin Up sentiment. The card was originally just mounted onto pink card but didn't look quite right and so I mounted it again on a piece of white card which did the trick.

Love your spritzed butterflies and the splatter background you created for them. I think you were right to mount onto the white card, looks very polished :)
Thanks for sharing with us.
