Sketchbook Saturday & Butterfly Challenge

Today I am joining in with Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday #100, along with The Butterfly Challenge #5; charm.



I used STAMPlorations, Mom's Subway Art Builder #4.  Traveling around blogland I came across using a water method of stenciling.  Ink up your water paper, spritz the stencil with water and lay down the stencil [I used Studio Calico Mister Huey's Butterfly stencils] over the inked panel.  The water reacts with the ink and makes a water colored image.  Very cool end result~



I got a new Dare 2B Arty's stamp set, Hot Air Balloon with die, and had to create with it!  I came across Catherine & Cathy Create #029, blue & yellow.  Perfect.


Right?  Living in Arizona, we got a ton of hot air balloons flying around. The designs and colors are just fabulous against the blue sky.  I think this set was made for me :).

Well, that's it for me today - I'll be back tomorrow with some more challenges!


Thanks for stopping by~

Wow. Very impressed with your card. I had to look twice for the butterfly! Don't know how I missed it. The colours are fabulous and the little charm ingenious. Thank you for fluttering by first for #5. Hugs Mrs A.(butterfly challenge).

Love the colors you used and the hot air balloon looks like it is going to float right off the card. Love them!
