wee Memories challenge #17 Butterflies


Made for Jenny's wee Memories butterfly challenge.  I stamped the Artists Buttterfly twice on watercolor paper and then colored one in orange and the other in aqua markers, then combined them.  I tried Kathy R's method of little white dots for highlighting, and that takes a steady hand.....I need lots more practice.   The sentiment is perfect, I think, for a butterfly card.

Supplies:  Hero Arts H5426 Artists Butterfly, CL278 Great Flourishes Messages, My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow papers, orange and turquoise gems, orange paper flower

THANK YOU, wee Memories, for choosing my card to be in your Fab Four!
