Good afternoon crafty friends! Hope y'all are having a great
weekend so far! I decided that I wanted to try to get into a little
bit of painting for my cards. I went to Hobby Lobby and
bought this watercolor pigment set and used my 40% off coupon
so it was pretty inexpensive. I did some YouTube searching
for how to incorporate stamps into watercolor painting and I found
this awesome tutorial by Dawn of Wplus9 stamps. I just used
a butterfly stamp I already had from a MFT butterfly stamp set.
I painted two butterflies and put them on cards. The first butterfly
I put on a card following the August week 2 sketch from Viva la Verve.
The second butterfly I put on a card following the current
Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
