I just can't get enough of these wonderful new In Colors. They just go so beautifully together and with all the SU colors plus.....Choc. Chip :-) I used the beautiful Bella Blooms DP (love every side), textured In Colors CS and the new Dreams du Jour stamp set. The 11th is getting so close and I have been drooling over every page of my new Catty. If you do not have yours yet it is well worth the wait.
I watercolored the BG of the main image by misting the watercolor paper and then painting with Riding Hood Red darker on top and gradually lighter towards the bottom. This technique is called Watercolor Wash. The butterfly is stamped with Timber brown Stazon and then watercolored the the RH Red, covered twice with Crystal Effects, cut out the wings and attached with mini glue dots to the stamped image on the main image panel. There is a little crystal in the center of the silver HH brad.
Happy Stamping and Enjoy.......
