Watercolored Happiness

I've started a watercolor class on-line and been doing a wee bit of dabbling with it. I confess that up until now I don't think I've used a water brush before.  Those things are pretty nifty when paired with watercolor pencils. I see they take a bit of practice to get the right amount of water out of them, but really pretty easy to figure out.
I made this long skinny card (fits a business sized envelope) by coloring the images with watercolor pencil and then going over it with the water brush.  I then sponged the edges, added some ribbon and a paper flower and called it done.

The Fine Print: Butterfly stamp by Club Stamp, flowers by Prima, papers, ribbon and brad from my stash.  That's all she wrote!

Fantastic design--very artsy, and I like the longer shape. I love my water brush and water color pencils too. Such a fun and easy way to color.

I just can't get the hang of watercoloring at all and tend to make a mess! You are doing wonderful with it though and the butterfly looks so real. Great card.
