Mother's Day Card

The Markerpop blog has had watercolor tutorials all month, which has inspired me to bring out mine and conquer my discomfort with this medium. I used my waterbrush with Prima Watercolors (Decadent pies) and assorted inks. Everything is watercolor. I used my Tim Holtz Burlap stencil and modeling paste to add texture to some shimmer cardstock and then painted with watercolors to create the background. I painted the background of my "scene" with watercolors and the same type of shimmer cardstock. Using the scraps of the shimmer cardstock, I painted swatches in several colors from which I die-cut and punched the butterflies. The flowers were stamped and die-cut with Your Next Stamp "Plant some Kindness" and colored with water-color.

This is my entry to the MarkerPop challenge #118 Watercolor Animals (in this case butterflies). This is also my entry to YNS Color challenge #62 and Sketch-n-Scrap card sketch #96.

Patterned papers are from Quick Quotes.
