Brusho Butterfly

The CAS Watercolour challenge is to create a colourful butterfly.
To make this card I used a Sweet Poppy stencil with some Pearlescent White embossing paste. Once I had lifted the stencil, I tapped a few grains of Brusho colours over this in Turquoise, White, Ultra Marine and Cobalt Blue. After waiting for a few moment for the colours to mix the with paste, I then spritzed with water. Over this a sprinkled a little Gold Glamour Dust and left it to dry.
The sentiment is from an old Magenta stamp simply embossed in Gold and cut with a tiny stitched rectangle die. I had to extend this by just a couple of stitches in order to fit around the image completely.
I'm really fond of butterflies for cards so I may be trying another card very soon!
