CYS- No Designer Paper

This month for the Challenge Your Stash theme this month was given to us by Darlene, and she chose the there to use NO Designer/Patterned Paper.


 I covered watercolor paper with Distress inks in purple and yellow.  Next, I spritzed a stencil and laid it down on the paper (wet side down).  The water reacts with the inks and makes this cool pattern. Once dry, I stamped and embossed the butterfly.  I added sequins for a nice final touch.

The CYS group can be located here.  List mom Barb had the brilliant idea- lets use our stash items- with a monthly theme, I am sure finding no shortage of items to use in my creative space for this challenge...!!! Even those in the 'get rid of' pile....... HERE is a link to all of the August cards the group members posted for this challenge.

Shelly, what a gorgeous background! I ma going to have to try this out. Beautiful card and I love the sparkle of the sequins. Distress inks are so fun to play with and I love your color combo. Have a great week. We are off on vacation. Tom says I need to get away from the grand babies for a while and Mom and Dad need to learn to do it on their own. Guess they are going to get a crash course. LOL!
