Color Throwdown #335-Sending!!

Good Morning!! Time for the next set of colors for the Color Throwdown Challenge... brought to you by me!! I am in "full on" spring mode!!

I really want this dress from the Sundance catalog!! I can just see me "swishing along" enjoying the sunshine after a day at the beach!! You can see that too, right :)

I made a stencil with the Simon Says Stamp Butterfly Drift die, taped it down with washi tape over my card panel and sponged with inks. While the stencil was still in place I flicked some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in white. The butterfly outline is created from the die... love this!! It was layered over the sponged areas to give more definition. The sentiment and die are Simon Says Stamps Sending/Wishing.
