Butterflies in Pastel

Welcome to another
Card Concept Challenge!!
Your entries for the last challenge were ah-mazing!!!!!
Thanks for ALL of the inspiration!!!!!

We have pretty pastels this time!




I started my card by painting some Tim Holtz water color paper with lots of water and my Prima Metallic Accents watercolors. After they dried, I splattered them with the same watercolors, plus some black. 


After the watercolored papers were good and dry, I used my Verve Graceful Butterflies dies and die cut lots of pretty butterflies. I think they turned out GORGEOUS! I die cut white vellum paper to layer under the larger butterflies. You can barely see the vellum layers in the photo. I think the vellum  added a little bit of softness.


I hope I have inspired you to join us here at
