Tuesday Morning Sketches #262

It is Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over atTuesday Morning Sketches. The challenge this week has a twist which is Watercolor and will be judged. Our sponsor this week is Craft Classes Online .

I matched my Tombows to the designer paper them added some color to a craft mat and spritzed water on it, I then used a paint brush to add it to my card. I stamped a image over top in brown once it was dry then added some gems.

For the cross panel I used an embossing folder to add some texture and also added some twine. I used a couple of die cuts for two different sized butterflies and added some Wink of Stella to the wings for some light sparkle. I used also used some gems for the body and finished with a simple sentiment.

Supplies: Cream and tan card stock, Designer Paper – My Mind's Eye, misc thank you, Stampin' Up! - Watercolor Trio, Inspired by Stamping and Memory Box die cuts, Wink of Stella, embossing folder, twine, gems.

Be sure to stop by the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to join in the fun, also check out the fabulous creations created by the Design Team.
