Water Colour Wednesday - Botanical Flutters

Hi Everybody,

This card is created with a beautiful die from Spellbinders called  Botanical Flutters 

I have simply cut the die twice in white card and layered them together for extra thickness.

I then water coloured the different parts to it with Gansai Tambi making the butterflies in pastel shades to stand out. 

They have been lightly brushed over with Wink Of Stella to give them a sparkly look.

I mounted the panel onto some lilac card and then added it to a larger base with an embossed panel behind.

The pretty pink sequins just tie everything together. The sentiment has been stamped and embossed and added to the same lilac card

The finished card has a soft and delicate feel to it and I am happy with the way it looks.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
