It does not show up in the picture, but that butterfly is filled with shimmery goodness. These Twinkling H2O's are shimmery watercolor paints. They have been around for a few years now, but I am just getting around to trying them. I really like them. :)
You can do a YouTube search for the Twinkling H2O's and see more for yourself.
The darker areas of the butterfly are the spots where I got more pigment and the lighter areas are the spots where I let the color wash out a little. I could have added more paint to make the color more uniform, but I liked this effect. I inked my background with Dusty Concord and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks, They were the perfect match. :)
More to come.
Hope you have a great week end.
