Watercolour Butterflies

Hello there, a little while ago I signed up for the Online Card Classes Watercolor for Card Makers Intermediate Techniques class. Well, I finally got around to doing some of my homework! If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen how this piece took shape.
 

I started off with a piece of Arches Cold Press watercolour paper and added this to a board with painters tape. I then stamped the butterflies from the WPlus9 Flora & Fauna set using MFT Natural Hybrid ink. I then went to work water colouring it. I used primary colours of Winsor & Newton tube watercolours. I started off by laying down a wash of colour and then went in to add more definition.
 
 
Once the piece was dry, I stamped the sentiment from the WPlus9 Strictly Sentiments 5 stamp set, using black ink. I then mounted the piece to an A2 black card base using foam sheet.

I really enjoyed painting this piece and I am looking forward to creating some cards like this in the future. Thanks so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a great week!
