Watercolor Butterfly for Addicted to CAS

I have a new toy!

I had to have wanted the Wplus9 Flora and Fauna set since I saw it last year.

What a perfect set! It has flowers, butterflies and birds.

It was my choice for the challenge at
Addicted to CAS 
this time and I chose.

The sponsor this time is
Prize - $10 voucher to the store
(They have some pretty butterflies too.)
And we have a new Guest Designer this month.
Do go visit her blog.
She has some awesome CAS Designs!

I stamped this medium-sized butterfly with StazOn ink
and watercolored it with Distress Markers and my Aqua Painter.

Love the way it turned out.

I even got some good splatters!

I had this little snippet from a piece that I did using 
Kylie's Acrylic Block Technique.

It seemed a perfect resting spot for my butterfly.

and my snippet gets me into
Pixie's Snippet Playground
