Hello peeps! I am bravely attempting another watercolored creation for the CAS Watercolour challenge for July, which is butterfly!
I began by heat embossing the butterfly from Butterfly Basics on some watercolor paper with Versamark and clear embossing powder, then loosely watercoloring all around it with some Flirty Flamingo and Calypso Coral inks:
I ran it through the Big Shot with the Butterflies die, only cutting it to just shy of the center, then turning it and cutting it again, so that there was still an uncut portion in the center. I folded up the wings and added a layer of Dazzling Diamonds gimmer paper underneath; can you see it peeking through?
And then I added a scalloped mat of Calypso Coral; the sentiment is from Paper Pumpkin. I mounted everything on a Very Vanilla card. With a generic sentiment like "hello", it could be used for most any occasion! I might go back and add a couple of sequins, but for now, I'll just leave it as it is!
Dana's gift to me for Mother's Day was one of those painting classes....a bunch of people get together and they all paint the same picture! I had myself pretty convinced that I could not do this....I am no artist! But the teacher explained everything and it was pretty fun!
I chose a sunflower! Dana's is on the left, mine is on the right!
It's funny how everyone starts with the same "ingredients" and yet the end result is a unique creation! Thanks for popping in today! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
