Winged Beauty

Hey there,

I saw this video  by Dawn Woleslagle and instantly fell in love with this Flora & Fauna2 set. She is extremely talented artist and I got so much  inspired by her water colouring that I bought the set.

 I tried it on water colour paper.....

 ......didn't get that soft transparent look but learned a water colouring little goes long way. Anyway, I am going to try again and again till i get that desired look...:)

And then I made a card my way...:)

It is a side fold card. I drew a line with pencil 1" away from right edge and stamped and emboss butterflies in gold. I fussy cut butterflies and removed that 1"strip. Black strip was added inside of the card to provide contrast. 

Even though it is a single layer card, the partially cut butterflies give it a 3D look. They are coloured with various distress inks. 

I have used the same technique on this card too. Hope you will like it.

See you soon...till then... happy crafting!
