Watercolored Butterflies! Give It a Go!

Stamped butterfly images and watercoloring are the perfect match.  Stampendous stamps had a beautiful three piece set of butterflies and matching dies.  My challenge in preparing and completing this project was to watercolor the stamped images.  This was going to be a a February class at Scrapbook Cove and I wanted to teach the basics of using watercolors to beginners.  I bought a 8 paint pallete set from Dollar Tree to demonstrate that as a beginner there is no need to invest in an expensive set of paints.  It is about the technique of shading, blending and mixing colors.  I used a variety of techniques for each card and each image was embossed to accenutate the details in each image.
