We have a new challenge starting today at Tuesday Throwdown and it's an easy one - Anything Goes! So let your mind take control and join in the fun!
Our awesome sponsor this week is Oak Pond, and they have provided amazing images for our team to use. I chose to use the Butterfly image.
I started by printing off my image in a very faint grey on some watercolor paper. Then covered the whole thing in clean water, making sure to stay within the lines. Once the whole thing was wet, I just dropped color around. I tried to stay a little symmetrical since it is a butterfly, but also let the galaxy do its own thing. Love it!!!
Once everything was dry, I did some white splatters to represent the stars. I think the white just completes the whole thing. It's kind of fun because if you look closely, you can still sort of see the details of the butterfly wings, even though they aren't defined in any way.
To finish the card off, I used an awesome sentiment from the Hero Arts Shoot for the Moon stamp set. I white heat embossed it onto some vellum, flagged the ends and placed it over the center of the butterfly. I did a little splattering of some black and dark blue on the background panel before adhering the butterfly with some foam tape. I love the simplicity of it all with the very detailed butterfly, so pretty!!
So be sure to stop by Tuesday Throwdown to check out the rest of the DT's creations, and then join in the fun!!!
