To create this card, I started with two A2 watercolored panels. One in peachy red from the watercolor palette and and the second, in gold. I cut away a diagonal portion of the second panel across the middle.
For the pretty butterflies, I used my all time favorite Flora & Fauna 2 stamp set. I stamped the butterfly images onto watercolor paper using Versamark ink and heat embossed the images using the Ranger white embossing powder. Next, I watercolored each butterfly using my watercolor palette, I let the images dry and fussy cut - you could also use the Flora & Fauna companion die to save time. For variety, I also stamped some of the smaller butterflies onto vellum, heat embossing and fussy cutting them as well.
For the sentiment, I die-cut the word "smile" using the Flower Doodles die several times and adhered each one on top of the other to give a nice dimension. To complete the sentiment, I used the "from all of us" sentiment from the Love Mom stamp set.
Finally, I added some Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins to finish off the card.
Just another look how pretty the gold watercolor paint when it hits the light :).
I hope you guys enjoyed :)
