Watercolour fun with Butterfly Gala!

Today’s card was totally inspired by the ever talented Debbie Hughes. Debbie does wonderful things with Watercolour, and her cards are always stunning and her recent watercolour butterfly card is no exception. For all Debbie works with another companies products, I could just see Butterfly Gala in her creation, and so just HAD to give it a bash!

Each butterfly is stamped in Staz-on ink onto a panel of Watercolour card stock. Because of the texture I use my Stamparatus for this job so that I can repeat stamp and get a clear image. I think each butterfly took 3 or 4 goes to get as bold an outline as I wanted.

Then each butterfly was loosely watercoloured. A single colour for each butterfly, Melon Mambo, Blackberry Bliss and Blueberry Bushel, and some coloured splatter added over the top.

Then, once the watercolour was dry, I added an ink blended boarder of Crumb Cake ink around the piece with a sponge. I LOVE the texture this creates on the watercolour paper, so pretty!

To finish the sentiment, also taken from Butterfly Gala, is stamped onto a scrap of Blackberry Bliss card stock and heat embossed in White, some loops of Silver Metallic thread and a handful of sequins scattered across too.
