Water Coloured Butterflies

Hi Everybody,

So I thought I would put my new pink handled water colour brushes to good use and this is the little card I came up with.

I used the Layered Butterflies  from my own Christina Collection which is available only from Craft Stash and I coloured them with Gansai Tambi water colours

The brushes are from Rosemary & Co  and of course you can get all different qualities.

Mine are synthetic and some that the stall holder at the craft show recommended

The stamps is one of Sheena Douglass's and is called True Colours. But I have had it a long time and it may no longer be available

The card itself is made with the dies also from my set and I used the card element and the stitched border. There was no need to make a box as this one fits neatly into a standard sized envelope

I added some Gold to the body and wings using the Starry Colours also from Gansai Tambi and  dotted small sequins around the front

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
