I'm Using My NUBUS

Hello to you on this wet, windy and snowy Wednesday here in Halifax. Hope you are faring better with the weather wherever you are.

I am blogging a Card I have made to join in with Darnell's  NBUS challenge # 4. 
NBUS is an acronym that Darnell christened and stands for Never Before Used Schtuff  and the challenge is to encourage us to use some of our  stash that has never seen the light of day since being purchased to create something. So if you would like to play along click on this link djkardkreations to find out her Require-Mints, but you will have to be quick as it ends at 11.55 PST, March 31, 2015. Which of course is TODAY !!!   I'm not called Last Minute Lottie ! for nothing you know.
So here is my card

I made this card in memory of my mum.

I used Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserve DI to colour the masked panel then went over with a
Dutch Doobadoo  chicken wire stencil. I then stamped using Archival black ink and a Inkylicious Water Rain Drops stamp then lifted some of the colour out of the droplets and added highlights with a white Signo pen.
For the embellishment I stamped a Butterfly from the A Muse Studio Pappilon  stamps in Versamark and embossed in gold, then coloured with Distress Markers. The sentiment came with a magazine.
I like how realistic those water droplets look and the pretty Butterfly embellishment, though I would prefer the stenciling to be a little lighter next time.
So my NBUS are :-
Dutch Doobadoo  Chicken Wire stencil
Inkylicious Water Rain Drops stamp
A Muse Studio Pappilon  stamp set
Magazine freebie sentiment stamp
So happy to have been able to play along in Darnell's NBUS challenge # 4.

See you soon and thanks for dropping by

Happy Art making
Hugs Lottie x
