Today I am participating in the Ink & Inspiration Design Team Blog Hop. This months theme is : Watercolour. You are currently visiting Rosalie Desmond from Australia. 

I used some glossy paper with some reinkers and Aqua painters to create a background. I wanted the colours to remain true, so I allowed the background to dry naturally. This process can be sped by using a heat gun on number 1, however, it does change the colour a little.

I then used stamps from Butterfly Basics in Black  Memento. The sentiment "hello" is from the Flourishing Phrases. As a final touch, I brushed on some wink of stella to the cut out butterfly image.

  3. Gorgeous Rosalie, I'm going to have to try your using glossy cardstock!

    1. Glossy paper is interesting. I believe this is the first time I've used it. So many more techniques to try.
