Clarity Challenge May2016 - Anything goes

This is an experiment with embossing resist technique and Brushos.  First the Clarity Butterfly trees was stamped in Versamark, with a couple of Clarity words from the Birdcage set, these were all were clear embossed.  The Brushos were used on top of the embossed image; there is a little trial and error required for how much water to add, as you need enough activation to outline all the stamped image, but don't want too much that the colours blend!  There are several experimental pieces, in various colour combinations, that did not make it to publication!

The main design was mounted on contrast blue, and the card base background stamped with all 3 sizes of butterflies (from the same Butterfly Tree set), picking out the different colours of the Brushos.
