LIM challenge...

Less is More challenge this week is Butterfly/Butterflies.  For my card I have used a crafts too embossing folder which has butterflies on it.
Stamped a butterfly from the Stampin UP set called Touch of Nature onto turquoise card them used bleach to bleach out the colour in certain areas this gives such a pretty effect.

Added a few pearls then mounted the butterfly onto circles using SU punches and the SU scallop one.  Greeting is computer generated...

Thanks for looking

Lovely effect Anne - I daren't use bleach as I'm a bit clumsy and am likely to spill it on the carpet!

Lovely card and the butterfly has worked well with the bleach as results can be variable can't they. Good idea using that embossing folder as a background too.

Lovely card, Anne, I'm impressed to read you made the butterfly by bleaching, you must have a really steady hand as the lighter areas are perfectly done, looks almost like it's been printed. I'm not brave enough to try this technique either, lol. CoB

This is lovely Anne. That touch of colour is excellent. Don't think I would be brave enough to use bleach.

That is a stunning card Anne. Love the bleached effect, but have never tried it. I see you have found the Aquarelle font and had a go at generating a sentiment ....Well done....Easy isn't it?
