Watercolour Butterfly

Have you seen the pretty inspiration photo at Addicted to Stamps and More? I couldn't resist making a card, because I'm addicted to butterflies and these are my favourite colours.

I stamped the Penny Black butterfly using Zig Markers, blended on the stamp, firstly without water and then a few more times adding more colour and spritzing. Then I added water to the rest of the image and dropped in more colours.  The card was embossed with a die.
The sentiment is stamped with Delicata Gold Ink and I added lots of fine splatter.

Stamps: Penny Black 'Trio of Buttereflies' and 'Sprinkles and Smiles'
Die: Sizzix by Tim Holtz Mixed Media

I'm entering the following challenges:-
