Simon Says,,,Butterfly Drift

Hi all :-) I have had a lovely day doing hardly anything ,,, made some cards, visited some blogs,,, went for a swim ,, :-)

On my recent visit to Simon Says Stamp I picked up some new goodies, and I used a few of them today !! The recent release Butterfly Drift is so pretty and as the challenge over on the Less Is More Challenge is Watercolours I thought I would also open my new box of Gelato's and give them a whirl ,,, LOVE 'EM 

I have to thank Shari Carroll here for really introducing me to them properly, she gave a FANTASTIC class during the Simon Says Stamp CREATE event using them and was completely hooked ! :-)

Anyways I made 4 cards using the Butterfly Drift die and a variation on techniques.

I scribbled 3 shades of yellow Gelato's onto Neenah cardstock, sprayed with a little water and blended with my finger.

On this 2nd one I used acetate for the butterflies to 'fly' on :-)

now for a colour change. I sprayed and splattered on this one 

and last but not least ,,, I think this is my fave ,,, saved the best for last :-)

thanks for looking :-)
