Pile It On! Challenge - Thank You!

It's the first Sunday of the month, so that means that we have a fun new Pile It On! Challenge starting today...the theme is:

'Thank You'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Sasayaki Glitter
Sponsorship Badge
Prize - 1 Digital Image

I used my new 'Big Butterfly' stamp from Stampendous again on my card...in fact I made it at the same time as these ones I blogged last week...but used a different technique. I started by stamping the butterfly on to watercolour paper using Versafine 'Smokey Gray' ink. I then used Distress Inks (Wild Honey, Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs, Broken China and Mermaid Lagoon) to watercolour the image. I added a sentiment (from the 'Heartfelt Wishes' set by Hero Arts), also stamped in 'Smokey Gray' ink, and distressed the edges of the watercolour paper a little before mounting it on to my card blank.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:

Wow - so pretty. As many watercolors as there are on the market, I think DI might just be the best when it comes to saturation of beautiful colors. Your butterfly is gorgeous.
