Butterfly Splatters

Sunday, July 26, 2015



You know when you have an idea for a card and it just falls together?  So that's not what happened with this one :)  Oh, I had an idea of what I wanted to do, but my brain and my hands had different ideas and wouldn't cooperate.  It took me several tries, but I finally compromised.





I've been dabbling with water coloring and it's so fun to play with inks -- you never know exactly what will be created!

Thanks so much for these challenges for the inspiration (hope the ideas of my brain and hands do the challenges some justice!)
