April Challenge-Mid Month Reminder....

at STAMPlorations ......
for their Sketch and Theme Challenge this month.

The Design Team is fabulous and always come up with the 
most original, creative and stunning inspiration. 
STAMPlorations have a very active Blog, if you've time pop across and take a look....
They also have great challenges, incorporating lots of different crafting styles.

Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to Guest with you this month.
Use The Sketch and....or The Theme
This is my card....
I have flipped the sketch and also went with the Stamp and Splatters Theme.
I started by stenciling the feather (feathers and arrows-Large stencil)
with clear embossing paste and clear micro beads.
The butterflies form The Wings Things stamp set have been stamped 
and heat embossed with white EP.
I have used Brusho's and water for the background around the butterflies.
The butterflies have been painted with acrylic paint and Brusho's.
The splats are also Brusho's.
The sentiment from Bold Sentiments and the edges from Mixed Media Elements 
have been stamped and heat embossed with white EP.

In real life the card looks quite wispy and artsy..I think the photo looks a little messy!
I learnt lots making the card, had fun and I thank you once again for the opportunity.
