Can't tell you if I enjoy last night at the party or not as I'm stikll Saturday morning, but will update you later on..
Today I'm sharing another project with simple, plain, unadorned, butterflies..
I saw this first on You tube and really liked it because it involved butterflies that I love and water colouring which I REALLY love..
So started off with Bockingford water paper, my favorite.
And laid down the first water colour wash..
That dried quick so added another darker layer, more paint, less water.
Added their little bodies from a die set I won years ago..
Then found these papers in my stash from Uniti an A4 pad and most are foiled and very pretty..
and saved me water splattering..
The sentiments added in the middle...
Then scattered the butterflies around popped up on foam dots..
They are dimensional and probably will need fluffing on arriving at their destination..
But they were such fun to make and I really like these cards..slimline of course..
So there we go, wonder how I'm feeling will be interesting to find out...
Thank you so much for stopping by, I'll see you tomorrow..
