Tuesday Trigger: Watercolor Butterflies, ColourQ #134, Unscripted Sketches #155


Today's card is a combination of 3 challenges. Two of which I have never participated in before (Tuesday Trigger, ColourQ)...and one that I haven't done in awhile (Unscripted Sketches).


Here is the Tuesday Trigger from Moxie Fab World:

Watercolor Butterfllies

Plus this challenge from ColourQ:


cQc #134

Plus this sketch from Unscripted Sketches:


#155

Equals this card from me:



I didn't have a butterfly stamp, so mine is watercolor dragonflies :)
I started out the dragonfly panel by inking up part of the image with a marker, and stamping it onto vanilla cardstock, I did that in 3 different colors (Only Orange, Bravo Burgundy, Cameo Coral). 



 I then spritzed it with pearlized water, and after it was dry, stamped some Caribbean Cool specks on it (which you can't really see).





Supply List:
stamps - Stampin' up! (All I have seen, Itty Bitty Backgrounds)
ink - Stampin' Up! ( Bravo Burgundy, Cameo Coral, Cool Caribbean, Only Orange)
cardstock - Stampin' Up! ( Cool Caribbean, Groovy Guava, Only Orange, Very Vanilla)
other - Stampin' Up! (Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Linen Thread, ribbon); Ranger (Perfect Pearls)
unknown - button, pins, pearls



Thanks for looking!
