Butterfly in Flight

Kathy, Vicky and Deborah all put forth a fun challenge with a sketch and colors. To play along you need to link to Kathy's blog.

I decided to create a butterfly card using the colors blended into the butterfly. The butterfly shape is from a Fiskars shape template. The stamps are from the beautiful Class Act - Chapel Road Artstamps - Butterfly Angle, Birthday Edwardian Butterfly Square.  The inks are Ranger Archival Ink - Black, Adirondack - Peach Bellini.  The images are colored using watercolor pencils.

Here is the sketch and colors.

Hope you have a fabulous Friday!
