CC2C - challenge 7

It's time for the next Tim Holtz "Compendium of Curiosities vol II" challenge, hosted by Linda of Studio L3.  This week, the challenge is being sponsored once again by eclectic Paperie.
So, this week's technique is 'brushless watercolour'.  Now in Tim's book, it's on page 49 &  I've used this technique for the card background.  But we also learnt another, different 'brushless watercolour' technique in his Creative Chemistry 101 class (you can still join this class - it was amazing!) and I've used this one to add the butterflies.

I used watercolour paper, which gives a great effect!  I did the background in tattered rose, & used lots of different distress colours for the butterflies.
Such fun techniques!  And a way to watercolour where you don't have to be able to draw!!!
A little bit of ribbon,  a black diecut butterfly which I spritzed with perfect pearls (heirloom gold) & it was done...
I also started on a piece which I'll add to a card later, after I've added a couple of bits!

I love this colour combination of peacock feathers & crushed olive - I can see me using this a lot!
Back soon!  Kay

  1. Kay, these are both absolutely gorgeous! I haven't used actual watercolor paper for the Brushless Watercolor technique, and having admired yours I'm now convinced that it's the way to go. Your art is amazing!
