Flutterby Colors

Flutterby Wednesday - FBW128 Orange, Purple and Black

This week's Flutterby Challenge is to use the colors Orange, Purple and Black with your butterfly, fairy or angel on your project. I embossed this large stamp from
Butterfly Garden by Unity Stamps on watercolor paper. Then I used an aquapainter and ink to add color. The sentiment is from an Ippity Stamps set called Just Wanted to Say.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fluttery day!

Paper: Basic Black, Watercolor Paper, DP from My Mind's Eye
Ink: Colorbox Pigment Black, Blush Blossom, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant, Lavender Lace, Memento Tuxedo Black
