WATERCOLOR BUTTERFLIES

Watercolor for Cardmakers began today - the technique was how to make backgrounds.  Well...I totally messed up my first attempt, and couldn't let it go to waste so cut the piece up into butterflies.  Remembered a challenge (CAS(E) this Sketch) where maybe I could use them  - so here it is:


The watercolors I was using are just cheap Crayola ones.  I used Strathmore cold press watercolor paper which I like quite well.

Supplies:
Stamp: HA
Other: SU very vanilla cardstock; MB dies; MS punch; MME enamel dots

Thanks for looking and your kind comments.  Betty

  1. Love your card. I'm taking the water color class, too and had to do the same thing you did. I cut my first piece into inches and think it will work quite well! :)
