Watercolour Butterfly


I'm doing the Online Card Class - Stretch Your Stamps 2.  We've already had a full week and this is the first piece of homework I've come up with so far.  This is inspired by Melanie Deasy's no-line colouring technique.

I've used one of Susan's colour schemes from One Layer Simplicity Challenge #8, Shades of Summer:


I stamped the butterfly image (Uniko Studio) in Antique Linen then swooshed some Distress Inks onto an acrylic block and used them as watercolours.  The challenge at Shopping Our Stash is Splish Splash - use some form of wet medium on your card (yes please!!).


And I'm entering it into Uniko Studio Challenge Anything Goes.

I'm off to splash and splash some more!
