Just For You...

WMSC107 CR84FN59

Hi everyone - I managed to find a little crafty time for myself and wanted to quickly share what I made with you.  I have SO much to do before we go away on Monday, so I apologies for keeping this brief!

Butterfly detail WMSC107

I used canvas resist butterflies which I painted with an Acrylic Paint wash - I mixed the colour to coordinate with the cardstock - it looks a little orange in the photo but it's actually more coral IRL.

I am playing along with this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge WMSC107 and I used the colours from the beautiful CR84FN59 Inspiration board.



As always, thanks for looking and leaving a sweet comment!
