Green watercoloured butterfly.


Hi everyone, I've had this diecut panel and a sheet of watercoloured paper lying around for ages and thought I'd combine the two for a card.

The diecut was layered twice to give some dimension. I painted some watercolour paper with Kuretake gansai paints and the gold flecks are from some gold Finetec watercolour paint.

I embossed the butterfly to add some more interest and added a sentiment sticker .
Here's another pic that shows the shimmer from the gold paint.


The challenge at Less is More is anything but stamps.
I often create cards with diecuts and sentiment stickers so this challenge is great for me!


At CAS watercolour challenge the theme is butterfly. 
That's my other favourite image for cards!


At Seize the Birthday I've gone with the no toppings option of anything goes.


And at Addicted to Stamps & More it's also anything goes.


Supplies:
Memory Box ringo tiles border and Moonlight butterfly dies; Summer fun set embossing folder;
Kuretake gansai and Finetec watercolour paints; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
