I started with a watercolor panel and used SU! watercolor crayons in Pretty in Pink, Blush Blossom, Staedtler watercolor pencils, and MFT's Razzle Berry Dye Ink to create the background. I scribbled back and forth laying my color down, then took a brush and water and blended it all together. I then took the leftover paint and liberally flicked it all over my panel.
Studio Calico card kits. I cut random strips of patterned paper and layered them in the lower left hand corner of my panel and then used a Martha Stewart punch to cut out the butterfly. I layered the butterfly back in using Glossy Accents for the center and then used clear dimensional adhesive for to make the wings pop up.
MFT's Chalkboard Greetings, Too. This is stamped using my favorite Hero Arts Black Ink. As a final touch, I used a few clear "pearls" and one self-adhesive star which came in the Office Hours Card Kit.
I must admit, this took me about 20 minutes (with 3 kids that's about all I have these days!!) and I am thrilled with the results.
I hope to be back with another creation soon!
