Bold Butterflies and lovely background papers

This photo does not show it very well but this is an A3 size piece of watercolour paper !! I have spritzed it all over with water and then sprinkled on some pigment sprinkles - I then cut the paper into various sizes and used it to make backgrounds for a whole heap of cards. I sewed around it with my sewing machine. I think this is great for artwork for the wall also- this is quite a bold sprinkle as I used lots but you can go a lot more subtle - just keep adding water and sprinkle and wait for a bit as it grows - leave to dry overnight or dry with a heat gun.

Here are some of the backgrounds along with some designer series papers with the two layered butterfly images from the dies called Butterfly Beauty Thinlits (these are NOT retiring yea!) The pigment sprinkles are thought only available in a set of 6 pots with sprinkle lines until June 2nd.

My puppy is growing fast - but still looking guilty next to a shoe he should not be chewing! He is also rather too fond of my wool!
Anyway back to the project - see photos above of the dies and sprinkles and one of the finished cards that was for a purple and yellow colour challenge recently put up on my Facebook page with lots of comments so I though I would show it again on my blog as I am sure I used it quite a while ago - if you use search you can probably find it in the archives! It was a more subtle sprinkles look with the co-ordinating stamp set.
