Okay watercolor, I love you too.

  Hello late night crafters!
I have been working like a mad crazy person this weekend. Don't you love when co-workers call off and you have mandatory overtime? Yeah, me either.
 I mean, I just barely had time to play along with the current Paper Smooches challenge. Don't they know what's important?!
Seriously though, I absolutely love their inspiration photo and could not pass it up.
before I show my card I have a confession. I did not love watercolor. I know it's everywhere and super trendy and the cards are like OMG but it just didn't work out for me. The colors were too soft or I couldn't get the technique right. and then, oh baby, and then I watched this video from Dawn Woleslagle. It was crafty life changing. So here I am with my first real watercolor card :)
I stamped the little butterfly from Botanicals 1 with various distress inks and just added water. So simple but I love the look of it :)
I have a wedding next weekend and I thought it would make a beautiful card for such an occasion. The sentiment is from Simply Said.
Thanks for dropping in! Now I've got to go link this thing up before it closes!!


  1. Kelly, this is beautiful! I am glad that you have finally found peace and a workable relationship with watercoloring- by the looks of this card, I think it's going to work out just fine!!!! :) Thank you so much for sharing your talent with this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge!

  2. Gasp! That is amazing!!!!! Colorful, tiny butterflies!
