One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Altenew Day 5 ~ watercolor solid images

The Painted Butterflies from Altenew is a three step stamp, but today we just used the solid image...inking it up, stamping it off and then stamping onto watercolor paper.  I used Distress inks and went over it with a waterbrush.  Then I dropped in some other colors for the shading.  After it was dry I stamped the outline of the image.
I love this butterfly. it has so much movement in it!
If you haven't taken this class, I would recommend it, 6 videos by Lydia and she is awesome!  Great videos and she shows at least one other card for each class to stretch your imagination!
Heart Hugs!
