Watercolour butterfliesPosted: May 29, 2012
The Penny Black blog is featuring watercoloured cards today and once again the designers have come up with a diverse selection of styles. My card features watercoloured butterflies. I began by stamping the three butterflies in pale blue. I then applied all the wing colour with watercolour pencils and blended it with water. Next I embossed in gold over the top of the colouring and added a sponged, stamped and watercoloured background with some paint dropped here and there in the colours of the butterflies.
