The Card Concept Challenge # 119 -Beautiful Butterflies

The Card Concept Challenge is back from Summer Break!!!! 
We hope everyone has had a wonderful summer and we hope you are ready to create with us again!
We LOVE seeing all of your beautiful creations!

Look at this gorgeous Inspiration Board!

I love, love, love these beautiful colors!!!!!
And butterflies!!!! WOW!!!

Here is my card:

I am a huge fan of Debby Hughes-Lime Doodle Designs. She has a unique and beautiful technique of no-line watercoloring. I gave it a try. Of course it is no where near her quality, but I think my card turned out quite pretty.
 I definitely enjoyed creating it!

I stamped the butterfly images onto watercolor paper with  Antique Linen Distress Ink. I painted the images with  Gansai Tambi water colors. I splattered the butterflies with the paint colors, but I also mixed some Perfect Pearls to some water, and splattered that as well. Debby always does this to her watercolor images to add sparkle! Well...I wanted even more sparkle, so I added some sequins, too!

I hope I have inspired you to join us here at 

The style of my card would be considered Clean & Simple:
One main image
Lots of open space
Limited layers and embellishements
Quick & easy to create

We hope you will create a card or project using any of the  styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles.
All of the styles are explained HERE.

The Rules:

1.  Use the challenge inspiration to create a card.
2.  Use one of the challenge styles to create a card (or if you prefer, combine a few styles).
3.  Explain in a post which style or combination of styles you used and what inspired you from our photo.  
4.  Link your post using our linky (please link to the actual post on your blog and not just your blog).
