Watercolor Butterflies

Thank you for coming by to visit my blog and a big thanks to you if you have the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower. I want to say I really appreciate all the comments on my last post.  Please let me know you stopped by, so I can be sure and return the favor. 

I recently purchased a cheap set of watercolors and thought I would try something different. I used Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper but I will need to buy some watercolor paper and try it again.  I took the brush and dipped it in water then used the red watercolor and splattered it on the paper.  I used several colors for the butterflies and once the paper dried I die cut them out.  I used mounting tape behind each butterfly and behind the splattered red piece.

Materials:
Watercolor kit
Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper
Poppy Stamps Delaney Butterfly & Cheviot Butterfly
Impression obsession - Easter Joy die
Mounting Tape
Pink rhinestones

  8. Now, you may no be aware that I have a thing about butterflies on cards, a lot of my followers use butterflies and one actually runs a butterfly challenge and while I can still comment on the rest of the card I never mention the butterflies.
    This is a first for me.... I love this card, love the butterflies and your splatters, gorgeous colours too.
