Butterflies and Watercolour

We woke up the last two days in Yachats, Oregon. It was beautiful, however, we could not see the beach due to a really thick fog. So, rather than actually walk a few steps to the beach in front of our hotel, we drove south to do some shopping. I thought today, I would post picture of a card since I don't have any pictures of the beach yet!
I started with some watercolour paper and stamped with, Your Own Kind of Wonderful, than embossed. I added Lagoon, Glacier; and Smoothie ink. Once the watercolour had dried, I stamped over top in Desert Sand ink with a retired background stamp.

I used my Shin Han Marker to colour in the 2 yellow butterflies. I used a stitched oval die for the sentiment piece that I stamped with Black ink, then matted it with Glacier cardstock. I added Turquoise Shimmer Trim; Glacier Thick Twine and Oceanside Sequins.

I matted the watercolour piece with Lagoon and White Daisy cardstock, then added Smoothie cardstock to this 5 x 7 card.
