One touch of nature - Midway Creative with Stamps #1 - butterflies

Friday April 15, 2016
 Creative with Stamps  #1  MIDWAY REMINDER..

Since we are a month long blog challenge.. It's time for a mid month reminder.. So since the theme is still butterflies. duh.... I dug out more butterfly stamps. I love butterflies and have quite a few.. I did another watercolor background for this card.. I must admit the other side of the watercolor paper was my first choice and since I don't like to waste watercolor paper and I never wanted anyone to ever  ever see what I first did..'s now taped down to the coral card stock.. it will never be seen. I am obviously loving this one better.
I used recollection base, watercolor paper, kuretake gansi paint, black embossing powder for butterflies and sentiment, stampscape large butterfly, stampin up butterfly and sentiment

Come and get it - bright colors
