Inspired by.... oh ok, it's a copy!

The Card Concept have got a gorgeous photo inspiration challenge at the moment, and I have been trying out a few ideas, but have ended up shamelessly copying the photo. LOVE those butterflies! So here's the photo:


And here's my card:




I had a great time making all the butterflies. I got a bit carried away - they are all over my desk. I punched the butterflies out of watercolour paper, and then used a mix of watercolour pencils and inks to colour them. To add the swirly pattern I used a white Uni Posca pen. The butterflies are on 3D foam, with a gem in the centre to give them a little sparkle.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

The Card Concept challenge - using the Clean & Graphic style

Simon Says Stamp challenge: "Use Your Favourite Technique and/or Product" - watercolouring is my favourite thing at the moment :)
