Watercolor Butterfly

Good morning everyone; it's the first day of March, which means it's release day over at So Suzy Stamps! It's also time to announce the next challenge; Watercolors

I absolutely adore the new fancy butterfly this month, so I paired it with one of my favorite sentiments:


I heat embossed the butterfly & sentiment on watercolor paper (the bumpy side to keep the texture) with white embossing powder. Then I smooshed some Distress Inks onto my craft mat - I chose the new Cracked Pistachio, Mustard Seed, and Picked Raspberry. Using a water brush, I simply painted over the embossing to make it pop.


When that was dry, I used a smaller brush to add splatters of the same colors. I mounted my watercolor paper to a white card base, added a few sparkling clear sequins and this card was done.


Supplies used:
So Suzy Stamps You are my forever and ever, Fancy Butterfly
Distress Inks in Cracked Pistachio, Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed
Ranger Watercolor paper
Hero Arts White Embossing Powder
Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins in 4mm & 6 mm
Foam Tape
Neenah Solar White cardstock
Ranger Water brushes

I hope you'll break out your watercolors and join us this month.
