Color Throwdown #307 -Smile!!

Hey- it's time for another Color Throwdown challenge. This week Monika picked these fabulous colors!!

Oh... I did a little watercoloring. You may be thinking my colors aren't as "bold" as the colors in the swatch, but watercoloring softens the colors somewhat. Stamped the largest butterfly from WPlus9's Flora & Fauna 2 onto TH watercolor paper- I like that way it absorbs the colors. Added a sentiment from Strictly Sentiments 5. The background was created using Fresh Cut Florals.  The layout is this week's CAS(e) this sketch.

So pretty Vickie. Love the water colored butterfly. It looks awesome the way the colored blended on the image.

Oh Vickie - Your butterfly is gorgeous. It almost makes me a little sad that those beautiful creatures won't be around for much longer...seasons change, don't they? I will miss them, but your card is an amazing reminder of these lovely icons of spring and summer. Amazing job.

Your watercoloring is stunning, girlie! As is the card--gorgeous work!

Ok. Tell the truth. Did you swat that butterfly out of the sky, 'cause it looks so darn real! This is gorgeous stuff, my dear! LOVE it!
