A different style
Every once in a while I like to try something that goes beyond my usual style. I borrowed this set from a friend and I wanted to try the aged, collaged style of card with it. I actually pulled out some watercolour paper. I don't know why I was avoiding the stuff, it really doess make painting easier. The focal butterfly was embossed then painted on the watercolour paper. For the sponged background on the white, I tore a rectangular template out of a piece of cardboard. Using that as my mask, I sponged and stamped to my heart's content. I also took out some stress on the chocolate paper. I used my homemade distressing tool, a v cut into a fake plastic credit card, works quite well and gives your nails a break.
