Colorful Butterfly

Hello my friends.

Today is the last day to play at CAS Watercolour and I have
one more colorful butterfly to show you.

Our sweet host for the challenge this month is Marcia and she chose....

My butterfly was stamped on mixed media paper and heat embossed in gold.
The embossing helps to corral the watery color.

I've wet each section and dropped in a bit of re-inker and just let it spread
within that section.

The color was a bit too intense in some sections so I used a wet waterbrush
to sop up some of the color.  The brush needs to be cleaned often or the color
won't lighten.

When it was dry, I let Stella generously wink it.

Love that shimmer.

I found this sentiment piece in the UFO box, already stamped
and embossed.

This month our design team is joined by Amy (Miss Lomax Art) as
our Guest Designer.  Be sure to check out her beautiful butterflies as well
as the rest of the Design Team.  Lots of wonderful inspiration there.

Then watercolor some butterflies and join us at
CAS Watercolour.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

This is really pretty Bonnie and an inspired idea to use the reinkers neat to fill the different embossed areas of the beautiful butterfly, and that sentiment is wonderful! x
