An Easy Peasy Anything Goes Card for JUGS

Hello and Welcome to today's post.
Vicki is Hosting this weeks Challenge over at
and chose Anything Goes for Wild Card Week
'cause there are 5 Saturday's this month.
Yes it is everyone's favourite and bound to have
zillions of fabulous creations to cast our eyes on.
Here is mine! CA soooo Simple.
I love playing with stencils and this is 
one I purchased recently.
It's a Mixed Media one from Studio Light.
I started with white texture paste and left it overnight
to dry then placed the stencil over the image
and sponged Blue Craft Wax from Imagination.
I love the pearescent look hence the same colour
chosen for my card base and cut out sentiment
from Crafts4You.

This is the last week with our Talented Guest Hennelie
and we were honoured to share her talents with you all.
Please pop over To Our Blog
and see hers and the Teams choice of
Anything Goes.
Hope to see you in our Gallery this week.

The Beautiful Ulysses Butterfly

Hello and Welcome. Today's card is for the current 
Double D Challenge where we are to 
pick out a Butterfly from this Gorgeous Mood Board.
Details are Here

Now who doesn't have a collection of these beautiful creatures?
I know as soon as I saw this I was going to use my
Australian Nature #1 by Inspired by Stamping set.
You see the butterfly I used is the
Ulysses Swallowtail and is truly a site to see.
I have often seen them fly through my daughter's back yard
in Tropical North Queensland.
I went cas here as I wanted the feature to be
THAT beautiful butterfly.
I used Linen card stock as my base and
attached some Kaisercraft DP.
I then lightly stamped the orchids on top.
Once more I am using a new die I got
a few weeks back from Uniquely Creative - 
Crosshatch Texture
I heat embossed my butterfly with Ranger Copper Powder
then went on to colour her using a variety of mediums
including - Rustic Brown Metallique Paint,
Imagination Crafts Wax in Black and Blue,
PearEx Powder #681 (blue/green)
even a touch of Magicals. All in all
I have a lovely shimmery butterfly.
This was fussy cut and popped.
The sentiment is from the same set and
using the same embossing powder and
cut from a MFT stitched die and slightly popped.
