CTMH Australasian SE1 Last Chance Hop

Welcome to our latest Blog Hop as we will be getting a new Seasonal Catalogue next month we want to show some great projects made with products from the Seasonal Expressions 1 catalogue. If you arrived here from Maz Wood's Inky Fingers  you are in the right place, if you arrived her by chance no worrie just follow the link at the end of the post to continue the hop. You will still have time to purchase any of the products from the outgoing catalogue before the end of the month.

I have chosen Your Beautiful Self  B1516 as my product to showcase. I love butterflies and this stamp set is so gorgeous. It is so versatile and would be perfect for all sorts of projects.

I have been wanting to have a go using the Watercolours Paints Z3132 and the Watercolour Paper Z3146. So I decided to watercolour one of the butterflies, I was pleasantly surprised that you really can't make any mistakes when watercolour painting. If you add too much colour you can just water it down, if  you have added too much water just use a tissue and blot it up. I still have need lots of practice but I am happy with my first effort. I stamped the script background using an oval cut out, then adhered the painted butterfly with foam tape a little added bling finishes off the card. Even though it appears the backing cardstock is grey I did use white cardstock.

This second card was fun to colour with a variety Shin Han Markers, I love the rounded corners and the pop of yellow paper behind the stamped images.

This last card is a simple one and I really like the Flaxen, Glacier and Pomegranate colour combination.

To continue, hop along to Georgia O'Shea's Georgia Creates to see what great project she has created, she has chosen the Penelope Collection to showcase.
