Time Out Challenge #51 - Theme Challenge and Our 2nd Birthday!

The Time Out challenge blog is celebrating it's 2nd birthday this week!  Time sure has flown by!
We have a theme challenge with an optional technique twist for you this time around.  The theme is Easter and/or Spring and the twist is masking.

I didn't do any masking on my card, but I chose to use a butterfly and the sentiment to go with the spring theme.  I started out by sponging different colored inks on the butterfly die cut, which was cut from watercolor paper.  Then I stamped it in Versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I covered the entire butterfly with Wink of Stella.  The butterfly tail was impressed with another die.  I added some stamping and sequins around the butterfly and sentiment.
I played in a couple of challenges.  I hope they don't expire before I get around to posting this!
***ETA:  Looks like I was too late for both challenges!  :-(***
I used the colors from the Colour Q challenge #330.
I also used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #161.
Our challenge is sponsored by STAMPlorations.  The winner will receive a $20 gift voucher.  A random drawing for those who twist will win two standard sized ARTploration stencils.
You can see more inspiration from our design team and our guest for this challenge, TaeEun, on the Time Out blog.
Thanks for stopping by!

Love how you did this butterfly. The colors are so pretty. Sorry you missed those challenges. I can sympathize, as it happens to me all the time. I've got this new stamp on my desk, just waiting to be inked up. Thanks for the inspiration.

That is a really pretty butterfly - and I love how you brought it to life with those gorgeous Spring colours! You may have missed the challenges :( - but you still have lots of time to link up to AAA Cards (theme is embossing) if you're interested...
