Yep - it's that time again for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop and I am getting PTI creative whoop whoop!
This beautiful pastel-ly inspiration photo was right up my watercolour alley - so that is where I went this month.
I started by painting a little freehand watercolouring background onto Ranger watercolour cardstock.
And then-- gah!!!--- I hated the blotchy, "out there", waaaay too colourful thing.
However Betsy had a post about watercolour woes vs. watercolour wonders and loving your cards - use them differently blah blah blah - so I took the advice and just cut it up hah... Thank. you. Betsy!
Using the Bitty Butterflies Coverplate, I just diecut my little heart out and am quite pleased with the result -yay!
I cut two of the cover plates - one from the hateful watercolour sheet and one from white cardstock.
I adhered the die cut watercolored butterflies onto the negative space of the white cardstock for my card front and stamped my sentiment which is from the Brushed Blooms stamp set with Smokey Shadow ink.
I splattered Smokey Shadow ink onto the front, hoping it wouldn't make a HUGE mess :) and to mimic the splatters in the inspiration piece.
I tied a bit of ribbon and twine at the top and added a sweet pearl. The butterflies were folded here and there for a bit more interest.
I hope you are enjoying the hop and keep on going - thank you for stopping by!
