Distressed Butterfly Card!

Hey everyone!  I’ve been playing with some ink and came up with
this Distressed Butterfly Card! 

Distressed Butterfly Card! Inker's Workshop 2017

I know, I know…butterflies again?
Yep…I love them, get used to it!

This card really came about because I wanted to use the new
Watercolor Pencils again!

Here’s how things got started. Since there are currently only
13 watercolor pencils, I decided to experiment with mixing the
colors. So, Early Espresso is used on all of the shadow lines,
Rich Razzleberry is on the petals, and Old Olive makes up
the leaves and stems. I didn’t use any water, these are all
colored with the pencils only.

Don’t worry about staying inside the lines…just have fun!

I think using the Early Espresso for the shadows really
worked with each of the other colors, and helped bring
it all together…but I can hardly wait for more colors!

The finished flowers, and most of the card, are rubbed
over using Crumb Cake ink and a Sponge Dauber. That
lends to the overall distressed look I decided to go with.

The butterflies and the ink splats were only added after
I decided the flowers looked kind of old fashioned. Just
goes to show you that not every idea ends up where
it started!
