Just Us Girls #236

Technique challenge Watercolor Background

Believe it or not, I started out with a watercolor technique on this BG.  Then stamped the butterflies in Ocean Mist ink for my BG paper.  With many spellbinder dies and some fussy cutting, I made this card. I actually had a few of these butterflies cut out for another project and this one just fit perfectly.  Lots of sponging with Ocean Mist and Moonlit Fog on the yellow CS, I got the more green color that you see. 
I am entering this card in the JUGS challenge this week, as the technique is to create a watercolor background. 

This is a 4 X 4 card and I will need to make an envelope for it.  More fun! 
There is still lots of time to play in the challenge.  So get your watercolors wet!!!
