Faux Watercolor Butterfly


Another card for the Online Card Class Watercolor Class.  This is a fabulous class, but let me tell you...it is challenging!!!  What's really great about it is all the different mediums you can work with.  For instance, my background is true watercolor paint, but my butterfly is done with Distress Markers.  There is so much to learn about...how different mediums react with water...what works...what doesn't...

As, I've previously said, I will  not be sharing the details of the classes.  Although I am a true believer in sharing what I know...this is a paid class with fabulous instructors...they deserve the credit and the payment for the class.

What I will share with you about this card is a bit about the blue background...see the dots on the lower left and the harlequin pattern up the right side?  I pressed a stencil onto my finished card and lifted some of the watercolor off with a baby wipe to create that effect...cool right???

Wish you could see the beautiful shimmer from the Wink of Stella marker on the butterfly...guess you'll just have to use your imagination *grin*.
