I started with my inky sprays as they really are a love of mine in the craft room.
I wanted to share a few of the steps I went through to create the background and for the butterflies:
First I sprayed the gold/yellow spray onto the white cardstock. I usually do this on my craft mat but for purposes of the photos I sprayed on a leftover plastic package.
Then to finish it off I drag the white cardstock through the remainder to pick up the rest of the ink:
To create the stamped images I wait until the background is dry. I then stamped the images on the background using water resistant ink.
I added additional colors using watercolor pencils and used a waterbrush to soften the colors. I then came back with a white gel pen to add highlights.
I colored the butterflies and cut them out. I added brush tips to the centers.
