Watercolour Butterflies

Today I am playing in the PTI blog hop! I just loved the inspiration photo they picked this month!

Here is my take on the photo. I decided to use butterflies; I had thought about using ice cream cones but the die is too large to use in this pattern on a card. In the future it might make a nice canvas though! I used my professional watercolours from various companies and some Arches watercolour paper. I’d normally save such nice paper for larger paintings but I flubbed the other side so at least it got used right? The white panel was splattered with some grey watercolour and I added a vellum strip with a white embossed sentiment across the panel. The card base is made from aqua mist cardstock! Last but not least, I added a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
