Feel like it has been quite some time since I did watercoloring. So, I thought of trying some on the card this time.
I took a piece of watercolor paper, and picking Weathered Wood distress ink, I off-stamped a second generation image using the Penny Black Soft Wings stamp. This gave me a pretty light image, in a color I could easily blend with red or blue.
I then picked up Festive Berries and Salty Ocean distress inks and splotching some ink on an acrylic block, I started painting. For the butterfly’s body and antenna I used Pumice Stone distress ink. I finally stamped the sentiment from JustRite Bokeh Time using StazOn black ink.
For the background, I picked up a bottle cap, and stamped out the circles using Fried Brick and Faded Jeans distress inks. I also rotated the cap in place to get a splotchy effect of the ink. Finally, I laid out the watercolor panel on the card base at an angle and cut out the extra. I then foam mounted this panel on top of the card base.
Finally, I adhered some rhinestones on the butterfly, on the watercolor panel and the card base. This finished my card!
I am submitting this to Colour Me Card Challenge #54
Thanks for looking! 🙂
