Twinkling Butterfly

Hello my crafty friends. I have so many different projects going that I have neglected my blog and commenting this week. Here is a little thank you card I made with my new Twinkling H2O's.

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.
