Life is Good Stencil Card for Nani Ke Ola Blog

Hello!  Today I am sharing a fun, bright and happy card with you here and on the Nani Ke Ola Blog!  This card was easy to create, but has a fab artsy feel to it...

Supplies Used:
All products are by Prima Marketing unless noted otherwise: Butterflies Stencil, Watercolor Brush Pen, Watercolor Pencils - The Basics, Empress Gold Color Bloom Spray
Foil Die Cut: Pink Fresh Studios
Die: Lawn Fawn

To create this card I started with a panel of watercolored cardstock and began tracing the butterfly stencil with a very fine tip PITT artist pen.  Next I went through and haphazardly colored the butterflies in various colors with my Prima Watercolor Pencils.  Once everything was colored I went over them quickly with my Prima Waterbrush letting the colors blend and purposely taking them outside the lines.  Tip: when mixed colors make sure to wipe your waterbrush between shades, this prevent any muddying of the colors.  Once this dried I spritzed it with some Prima Gold Color Spray. My final step was to diecut the panel and adhere it back in place with foam adhesive.  I then added my embellishment/sentiment and ta - da!

I am entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
