Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Today I am participating in the Papertrey Ink blog hop. I have a card to share with you all that was inspired by this image...


I pulled the mosiac shape and the purple/blues color scheme out of this photo and incorporated them into my card.


I started by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper using Distress Inks. Ran that through my die cutting machine using the Mosaic cover plate and then adhered the pieces to my card front. 


I cut the butterfly out and layered it with white card stock and a piece of vellum. At first the white was a little to much against that vivid background, so I went in and added a touch of color to the wings with some colored pencils.

Thanks for hopping by.
