The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge 84

Welcome from Anna's  pretty creation.

A theme this week - watercolour


Now for me this is a bit of a challenge as I am not all that good with watercolour

I pulled out my watercolour paper and this is what i did




I cut the butterfly from a piece of whisper white (or any scrap paper) to form a mask on the watercolour paper.
Dropping water on the butterfly I slowly added colour starting from the Daffodil at the bottom and working up to the Tangelo then Melon adding a little darker colour as I went.
When it was dry I then swished my aqua pen over the paper again and placed down some Bermuda Bay ink.
When the whole image was dry I then drew on the antennae and stamped the sentiment.
This was then adhered to the base card with dimensionals.


  • Stamps: Sentiment from B.Y.O.P
  • Ink:  Staz On, Melon Mambo, Tangelo Twist, Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay
  • Card: Whisper White & Watercolour
  • Tools: Bold Butterfly Framelits with the BigShot, aquapen & fine black Sharpie pen
  • Embellishments:  Dimensionals

Next on the hop is Annette.
