I used a smooshing on acetate technique to water color my butterfly...this technique makes me feel like I have a little more control over where my color ends up! I started first by embossing my butterfly image in gold (PFS - Butterflies) and then die cut with the coordinating dies, and then started the smooshing process. I started with the pink color (Spun Sugar Distress Ink), and then when dry added the Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink color.
Here's a close up so you can see my smooshing a bit better. Before adding my butterfly to my card base, I added a Lace Border Die cut (Concord & 9th) to the left hand side of my card base to add a bit of definition to it, and then finished off with the sentiment which also comes from the PFS Butterflies set, and a few clear gems. Pretty simple card but I love how it turned out!!
