Hello everyone! Today I am sharing inspiration using Simon Says Stamp’s
Outline Butterflies background that I illustrated, along with some additional exclusives that were released in Simon’s new Blossoms and Butterflies collection!
The card is watercolored with
Distress Oxides; not only are these inks amazing to ink blend with, but the rich colors also make for gorgeous watercoloring.
I was going for an ethereal style with this card, so not only did I use a myriad of colors for the butterflies, but also in the background of the card itself. Mixing
Oxide inks is extremely easy, so even if you are a beginner at watercoloring, I think you’ll find this Oxide ink watercolor technique super easy and also fun!
To enhance the colors of the butterflies, I used a rainbow of
Nuvo Gloss Drops on their wings, and also in the background. For sentiments, I used greetings in both the You Got This CZ Design and our Comfort and Prayers set.
Want to see how I created this colorful encouragement card? Be sure to watch the video at the top of this post!
Thanks so much for stopping by and spending some time with me today; I will be back again soon with more to share!
