Pink & Purple

Hi there.  Another quick post to share this card I made inspired by the colours at Color Hues Challenge. 

I've been very thrifty in the making of this card, using mostly off-cuts from my scrap box.
For example if I make a mistake when stamping or making a background, I throw the piece in to the box to use the reverse side or for die-cuts. 
I made the watercolour wash with a mix of Daniel Smith/ Nuvo Shimmer Powder and Altenew Paints.
The Butterfly was stamped and coloured with Zig Marker, blending with Nuvo Glitter Gloss Pen. 

Stamp: Kaisercraft Ooh La La
Dies: Stampin Up Artistic,  SSS word dies

I'm sharing at the following challenges:-
