Winged Watercolor Wash

Here's a card I made using watercolor wash for a friend's birthday.  I started by wetting my watercolor paper and putting drops of reinkers on it using an aqua painter.  I used So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral and Strawberry Slush.  

Once the watercolor paper dried I ran it through my BigShot under an embossing folder instead of in between.  That flattens it back out.  I was too impatient to tape it down when I got it wet! lol  I've also found I need to use a very sticky tape to keep the watercolor paper attached to any card stock.  I've been using Fast Fuse Adhesive and that seems to be working so far. :)

I cut out the largest butterfly in Basic Black using the Butterflies Thinlits Dies.  Yeah I didn't even know the trick of using dryer sheets to pull out all the tiny pieces.  Glad my upline Glenda mentioned it.  Shows how much time I have to look at all the tips and tricks out there! lol  I also spritzed the butterfly with smooch spritz, stamped "Happy Birthday" on Calypso Coral paper and punched it out using the Decotrative Label punch and did another in black and layered it under the calypso coral one.  I also ran the base of the card through the big shot using the Large Polka Dot embossing folder.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
