Watercolor Butterflies

Happy Thursday! Today I have a quick post to share a card that I created for a class that I taught a few weeks ago.  

My card was inspired by the card to the left.  I don't know who made it,  but I knew I liked it and saved it in my inspiration file when I saw it.  If you know who might have made it,  please let me know so that I can give proper credit. This is another great reason to watermark your photos, ya never know when someone wants to give you a little shout out. :) 
 For my card, I used the Hero Arts Friend definition stamp for the background, it was embossed  in white and then the panel was edged with Tea Dye ink. The butterfly is Memory Box's Cocoa Bean butterfly.  I colored my butterflies with three different colors of Lyra Watercolor Crayons and then spritzed the stamp with some pearl shimmer spray and stamped onto 140# cold press watercolor paper. This stamp has a matching die, so I then cut them out and edged them with Tea Dye Distress ink.   Don'tcha love it when you don't have to spend extra time fussy cutting your images?  Well, I gotta run.  See you soon.
