This is for Mary - Redi2stamp who has sadly lost her mum. Mary is one of the loveliest ladies you will ever meet and I hope our cards let her know that she is in our thoughts and hearts.
About my card - I started by sprinkling Brusho powder on my el cheapo water colour paper then squirting on a heap of water. I got a bit carried away with the brusho's and water, it was resembling a river so I quickly whacked an A4 sheet of cardstock on it to mop up the water.
The watercolour paper was still oozing inky water so I took another piece of A4 cardstock and this time I gently placed it over the watercolour paper and rubbed my hands all over it to mop up as much as I could. The great thing is I have two A4 sheets and an A3 sheet of watercolour paper all in various strengths of blue Brusho.
I have used the second kissed sheet here, in real life you can see the grain from the water colour paper. The butterfly was from my stash (pre-MISTI days) and coloured with a layer of pencils, then a bit of distress crayon and finished with flicks from several Copic markers.
Thank you for looking.

Susie....This is Superlatively Amazing!!! I see you are in your Blue Phase now. Love the tiny Bling and the sneaking in of a little extra purple. I love how you offset it on the tall narrow card. It really is Outstanding! Love it!

Susie, this is just stunning! The butterfly looks so lifelike and looks like it is ready to take flight. I had to giggle about your background "fun" with the brushos I am giggling with you because I was doing the very same thing this afternoon myself. LOL. Your brusho background looks amazing and is the perfect backdrop for this stunning butterfly! Wow! I am putting this right into my favs! ~Karen.
