New Possibilities - The Reverse Butterfly Collage




Have you joined our Butterfly Challenge?  View the details - and post your project soon - the deadline is 11:59 PM EST on June 28th.  Jean Okimoto here - let's combine our popular Reverse Butterfly Collage with a quick, spritzy, inky technique.

Watercolored backgrounds are quick and easy.   To "D" or not to "D"  - ??? - distress inks work for this technique, but so do the beautiful colors of Memento DewDrops.  Just splotch the DewDrops onto the Craft Mat from Imagine Crafts and spritz it with water.  Let the colors blend for several seconds - then pick them up with watercolor paper.  Pretty cool, always unique and perfectly random for butterflies!
