Butterflies for CAS Watercolour

Hello, my friends.

There's a new challenge at
CAS Watercolour

Here's my card.....

I love the butterflies in the Flora and Fauna 2 set by Wplus9,

I've stamped the medium size butterflies and used my Zigs and water to color them.

It's hard to see in the photo, but I did a partial embossing  of leaves to
pop them on after I fussy cut them.

I'll bet you've guessed what our challenge is

Didn't Loll pick a great challenge?

I know we're going to see lots of gorgeous butterflies in the gallery!

Our Design Team and Guest Designer, Eunjo have
some awesome inspiration for you.
Check it out at CAS Watercolour.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

I can see the leaves and this is such a pretty card, Bonnie. The Zigs are so bright but you've managed to soften the colours beautifully.

What a stunning card! Those butterflies are so vibrant and realistic. At first I thought they were all different because they all feel different but it is how you colored them. Fabulous card! Two thumbs up even though only one of mine is working.

Bobby said...

I love the soft color on your butterflies, Bonnie. I have that stamp set and forgot there were butterflies included. Maybe because I have so many other butterfly stamps?
