Just a Note - a watercolor technique

Hello Delightful friends and family!
It's a gorgeous day here on the north coast of California!  Spring is definitely around the corner, our trees are budding and my wisteria is looking so pretty!  I must admit our winter has been extremely mild and I feel so bad for our east coast friends and family.  I hope and pray you are beginning to see some signs of spring!

I have a card to share that was inspired by Sandy Allnock's card and watercolor technique she calls Faux Glazed Glass.  I didn't use the same supplies and had to improvise and use what I had on hand, but I was happy with the results so thank you Sandy for the inspiration!!  This background is  watercolor that is layered with reds, orange and pinks (dried in between layers of color), with very little black and then some gold Perfect Pearls to add gold veins of color throughout.  I cut it down to make the square background and used some of the leftover paper to die cut the butterfly.  Beneath the pretty butterfly is a black butterfly mimicking the shadow.

The stamped and gold embossed sentiment is from Paper Smooches and the butterfly is a Spellbinder Shapeabilities die, the watercolor paper is from Ranger.  I will be sharing this card at Word Art Wednesday #175 Anything Goes.

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!
