JUST US GIRLS Guest Designer Second week

This week is trend week

I decided to go with my Distress Ink Oxides and I have blended on
watercolour canvas. i still don't have the orange so I did mix of Barn Door Red and Worn Lipstick
to get the orange look.  

I Heat set the panel then used my butterfly dies to cut out the different
butterflies and one swirl.
While the butterflies were still removed I did a bit of water flicking, dabbed
dry and once happy, cut another lot of butterflies with orange fun foam to fill
the spots where the butterflies went so they could sit a bit higher. 

Used the Misti to help with the Butterfly related sentiment and all done.

Thanks so much for coming to have a look. 
Don't forget to go see what the Design Team have done at Just Us Girls and get inspired to join us this week for another challenge.
