Penny Black Watercolor Butterfly

Hi Ya'll.

It's reminder time for CAS Watercolour

To make this butterfly, I smooshed some tissue in ink that had been
laid down with distress inks and smooshed.

I really liked how it looked after it dried so I glued it to a piece of cardstock.

This Penny Black die was perfect to cut it out.

I wanted a little glitz so I die cut the body from a snippet of gold foil
and the sentiment from another.

The background was made by masking the card front and
stamping the music score.

There's still time to join in at CAS Watercolour
with your watercolor butterflies

and there's still time to join in at
with your tissue paper creations.
My mixed media are tissue paper, stamping, watercoloring, masking and die cuts

Both Challenges are open until the 24th.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

A slightly belated Happy Birthday Bonnie and hope you had a great day. I adore your prettily coloured tissue butterfly, and the gold body and antenae with the sentiment to match go beautifully. I love that music score in the background too. x

"Love" is the perfect sentiment for your card as that is how I feel about it! I love everything about it - the gorgeous colours in the butterfly, the musical background, the touches of gold!
