Yellow and Black Guest Designing for Color Hues

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I am so excited to be Guest Designing for Color Hues today!

When I got the colors for this challenge, I was so excited.

So many things came to mind...bees, butterflies, birds...just for starters.
The hardest part was deciding which to go with!

You can see that my favorite butterfly won out.

I stamped on watercolor paper and heat embossed.  It's always fun to watercolor
the heat embossed images as the water pools beautifully in the different sections.

I popped him over some NBUS 3D embossing from Simon Says Stamp.

Thank you Color Hues for your challenge and for inviting me to 
Guest Design with you.
