Happy Butterfly

Salutations and greetings, friends!  Just trying out a new greeting.  It is a sunny Wednesday morning here and I just so happen to have a sunny card to share.


See?  Sunny.  I'm loving Daffodil Delight lately.  For my butterfly, I got some watercolor paper and did a wash on it with Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango ink refills, though I kinda wish I'd sponged the edges of the butterfly a little to give them more definition.  I wanted a solid butterfly, so I cut out one of the fancy butterfly Thinlits and then used the negative shape to trace the butterfly on the back of my watercolor paper (so then I could cut it out and not have to worry about pen lines on the edges).  The sentiment is from the soon-to-retire hostess set Hello Love, which I got last month and hadn't used at all yet; it's got some cute images so I do hope to get something made with it in the next couple weeks.

Anyway, the super cheerful color combo is courtesy of ColourQ:


And I used the latest Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch:


I stuck very close to the sketch this time :D

Anyway, lots to do today so I'd better get a move on.  Cheers, peeps!
