Congrats a la Moe-net!

watercolourbutterflies

Good morning!  Well, if Blogger is still having posting problems, this post will go live when I get up!!  LOL  And as you may know, Saturday is my lazy morning day…sleep until 7:00, coffee, blurfing, breakfast, coffee and then my workout :)  I happened to see this week’s Moxie Fab World’s Tuesday Trigger photo while on another blog and couldn’t believe I missed it!!  How fabulous is this dress?

Butterfly Reverie

It’s a work of art!! I was inspired by everything!! LOL  I dug out my old SU water colour crayons and did the wet spray technique…mist your stamp, colour haphazardly over the stamp with water colour crayons and then mist again before stamping on water colour paper.  Voila, butterflies a la Moe and Monet :)  I added some embossing on the raised white panel for a little more texture as well as some shimmery buttons and threaded bows.  Have a lovely Saturday…thanks for visiting :)

Love the post title LOL! Butterflies are perfect for the insp. picture! Well done :) A sleep in for me on a Saturday is 9:00 a.m. and that was rudely interrupted today as I had to get up at 6:45 so we could be out of the house one time to get to soccer. I think a nap may be in my near future LOL! Enjoy your weekend!

This is gorgeous, Maureen! Love the colours! A beautiful take on this week's trigger. I need to revisit this technique. Thanks for dropping off the stamp. I think it will work perfectly. I'm going to try it out shortly. Enjoy the sunshine!

Very artsy, Maureen! Your technique is very successful. Monet is a favorite of mine-I think I see the similarity :)
