Butterfly Hugs

I took a class with Julie Ebersole this past weekend--very fun and inspiring.  One of the projects involved this watercolored butterfly but I didn't finish it and then couldn't remember quite what it looked like so I made it my own.

Edited to add link to Julie's card I CASEd.

Don't you love how the Wink of Stella glitters beneath the Glossy Accents?  And I was really surprised by how much HA ombre ink lightened up after I applied the GA.  Very cool since the ombre remained--now it's like I have 2 sets of ink for the 1.

The Details:  Concord & Ninth Floral and Flutter dies, Hero Arts ombre ink butterbar to orange, Doodlebug Black & White Striped Washi, Glossy Accents, Ranger Multi Medium Matte, Wink of Stella clear, Impress Coloring Book stamps, Zigs, Simon Says watercolor hugs die, Recollections 110lb white cardstock

I'm entering this in Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes, Make My Monday In the Garden, Neat & Tangled #68 Anything Goes
