Watercolor Background

Hi, woohoo posting 2 days in a row.

I love creating a card following a sketch and recently I ran across another
challenge that has a weekly sketch challenge it is

Here is the sketch for this week.

I was drawn to the watercolor look of the yellow in the background
so I got out my Catherine Pooler inks and went to work.


I used 2 of the colors from the Spa Collection for the watercolor look,
Stone Blur and Rose Petals.  Then for the strip across I cut out
a piece of paper using one of the new CP border dies that came in the
lasted SOA box.  Then I colored it using Daydream ink.
The butterfly is a Close to my Heart Stamp, that I stamped in
Stone Blue then with an aqua brush I filled in the pink area with
the Rose Petals ink.  To finish it off I added a couple
flower buttons.
