What if Nothing Ever Changed?

Today is April Fool's Day but I'm not fooling you
'cause it really is the first of many Challenges each Month
 over at Happy Little Stampers 
It is of course our Watercolour Challenge.

 Here is what we are looking for this month
if you choose to do our Optional Twist.

 My play time was very limited in March 
so I rummaged through my 'Bits Box'
to find something watercoloured brightly
and found the piece I used above.
It has a mixture of my favourite products - 
Brusho's, Magicals, Nuvo Shimmer Powders
and thrown on was some Art Alchemy Metallic Paints
and good old Inka Gold.
I added some script from Kaisercraft
then carefully tore it in 3 then adhered to
my white card base.
I went looking for a nice butterfly stamp
and found this one - an oldie but goodie from Gina K.
This was heat embossed and then coloured 
with some of the above products and fussy cut.
Added a few drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Before popping it I cut out a few small MB ringlet dies.
Finished with my STAMPlorations sentiment.  

Pop over and see what my Team Mates created
and come join us this month in our Gallery.
Love to see you there.
Thanks for dropping in

UPDATE! We have a New Designer joining the Team
and it's the most amazingly talented colouring Artist -
 Gwendolyn Goh
A lot of you will have already seen her talents in Blogland
and I feel so lucky to again be working with her here.
A HUGE Welcome to the Team Gwendolyn.
