Watercolour Butterflies

Today I am playing in the PTI blog hop! I just loved the inspiration photo they picked this month!

Here is my take on the photo. I decided to use butterflies; I had thought about using ice cream cones but the die is too large to use in this pattern on a card. In the future it might make a nice canvas though! I used my professional watercolours from various companies and some Arches watercolour paper. I’d normally save such nice paper for larger paintings but I flubbed the other side so at least it got used right? The white panel was splattered with some grey watercolour and I added a vellum strip with a white embossed sentiment across the panel. The card base is made from aqua mist cardstock! Last but not least, I added a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Enjoy, Rebecca
