Watercoloured Lilac Butterfly



This is another card from my class at the Glitter Pot last week. It uses a different butterfly from the same Hero Arts set, which has been coloured using markers scribbled onto a tile, and the colour picked up with a water brush. I then added some extra black lines and dots with the fine point of a marker, and some lilac gems. The photo doesn't show it very well, but the butterfly has been cut out, and the wings popped up in the same way as the one on yesterday's card.
The background was stamped using a flourish stamp and lilac ink - stamped off once first to make it paler. I drew the butterfly trail lightly in pencil, then added the black dots before erasing the pencil line.

Finished off with a strip of lilac card, stripy Doodlebug paper punched with a Martha Stewart punch, and a gorgeous sheer lilac ribbon with swirls printed on it.

Sadly, I did a bad job with my photography on the cards from this class, and I no longer have them as they have been left behind in the shop on display. This card is much fresher and prettier looking than the photo shows!
