Watercolor Butterfly

Saturday, April 5, 2014

I broke out my inks, brush and water to do a little watercoloring for the back of the butterfly and added a touch of gold glitter and sequins.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and the butterfly dies are from Memory Box.

Here are the wonderful challenges that inspired this card...

(guess Mr. Butterfly started to fly off the page...he's a little high based on the sketch!)
