Colorful Flutters for CAS Watercolour

Hello friends.

It's time for another challenge at CAS Watercolour.

This month sweet Marcia is our host for the challenge and she chose....

This very colorful background done with Magicals and plastic wrap was in my stash
and I strategically cut out three butterflies from different areas of color.

I wish I could have gotten the shimmer to show up, but
the rhinestones and shimmer together was not very cooperative!

To get the shiny bodies, I used a Versamarker and sprinkled
with Rose Gold embossing powder.  I also used VersaMark and the same
embossing powder on the edges of the dry embossed piece.

A tiny strip of copper foil added a little contrast to thebackground.

In retrospect, it would have looked more CAS with just one butterfly
but those butterflies are stuck there for good!  No going back now.

Our fantastic Guest Designer Amy and Design Team have
some fantastic colorful butterflies to inspire you.
I hope you'll check them out and join us at
CAS Watercolour!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

I loved your perfectly CAS card with All 3 butterflies, Bonnie. It was so wonderful to see all 3 butterflies with the different colors of Magicals. Adding the thin strip of copper foil looks so pretty too. Adding a thin border of heat embossed copper EB Powder frame was another beautiful touch. TFS your beauty, my friend. Hugs..Nancy

This is a gorgeous card Bonnie, and I am loving that you used the three butterflies. It still looks very CAS! I love the embossed background and how you used your Versamarker to do the gold edge. You reminded me that I have those markers as well and need to use them! Love their bodies in the rose gold and the beautiful gems. I can only imagine how beautiful this card is in real life! Hugs, Brenda

I love every one of the flutter-bys we've bloomed, but [just once] I'd love to have one of a different color come out of a chrysalis! ha!
Yours are so pretty Bonnie... magical indeed!

JoAnn said...

I am glad you used all 3 of those lovely butterflies. They look fantastic with the embossed white background. I like how you added the touch of Rose Gold embossing around the edges of the embossed panel and the strip of copper foil for contrast. Great card my friend.

Those butterflies just fly off the screen Bonnie, I love the embossed background (need to use mine) and the perfect placement of the copper strip :)

Those butterflies are sweet and colourful (nailed it!). I can just imagine how shimmery they are. You always find the perfect embossed background to use... love that the embossed script background. xx

Amazing flutters, colourful and precious. I adore this die cut and you did definitely highly honoured them (wink) ;-)

Those butterflies are so pretty and love the texture from the dry embossing. The copper foil finishes off your card to perfection Bonnie x.

Brenda in IN said...

Oh so pretty. Beautiful colors and gorgeous strip of copper.

BożenA said...

Maybe with one butterfly, the card would be more CAS, but they are so beautiful that they deserve to decorate the card with all the flickering three. Now that I've seen them, I wouldn't let any of them be removed :-)

Beautiful Magicals butterflies in three different colors, Bonnie! The Rose Gold heat-embossed bodies look wonderful and the matching edges of the embossed panel is a wonderful touch! The dry embossed texture makes a wonderful background for the butterflies.
