Happy snow day! It's been snowing off and on for two days and we've got about 6" now. I can't wait for it to start raining to melt all this away. However, the roads are pretty clear so were not too bad off.
So, here is my watercolor butterfly....
Stamp is from The Angel Company. I watercolored this image using distress inks, water and the back of my acrylic block. Just ink up your block with whatever colors of distress inks you want (lighter to darker) and then spritz with water. I used watercolor paper, heat dried it and then stamped on my image. I did add a bit of coloring to the butterfly with some chalks to brighten it up.
I liked this technique so much I decided to do my card base the same way. I used my craft mat though instead of the acrylic block.
Pink designer paper is from Hot Off The Press and the cornice border punch from MS was used on the edges. Layered the main image and the pink with black, added a few black rhinestones and we're done!
Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear what you think!
