Hello Butterfly

Hi, wow posting 2 days in a row.

This is a very simple quick card that I saw on Pinterest and just
had to create one myself.  It was originally posted by 

I used my Stampin Up Butterfly Framelits.  I love this set of 
dies  as you can tell cause I have been using them a lot and they
have such a delicate look.

So that I could paint my swashes right where I wanted them
I had to mark the butterfly image somehow on my paper, so here it what I did.

I place my die upside down on top of the watercolor paper and ran it through my Big Shot.
That left just enough of an impression of where I wanted my butterfly to be cut out so I could add my paint.  Then I painted with watercolor color paints
across the butterfly impression then cut out the butterfly. 
In order for me to mat the the panel I had to cut out another butterfly
in the exact same spot on a piece pink of paper.
To finish it off I stamped the "hello" in black ink.  The hello reminds me of 
a doodling kind of writing.

This card is so easy to create, go ahead and give it a try.

I will enter it in the following challenges.
