Lawn Fawn April Inspiration Week - Flutter By

Welcome!!
It's Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week again! I love this time of the month!! :)
So today we are featuring "Flutter By", a beautiful floral set with really pretty butterflies, flowers and leaves, not to mention the gorgeous sentiments!!

I know most of you already own this set and I've been seeing amazing cards and projects using it so making a card to feautre it that show something new was, honestly, difficult.
But watercolor is hitting hard this season so I wanted to try it myself :) I used watercolor paper, water and mister huey's mists (Heirloom Blue and Custard) and then, after letting it dry, I stamped the flowers and leaves.


I loved playing with mists this way so I ordered more mists and made anoyher card with something like a watercolor rainbow background in my mind. At the end I made this background and I incorporated two acetate butterflies.

The first time I saw acetate butterflies was on Laurel's blog and I loved them, she's such an inspiration! I glued the acetate butterflies to paper butterflies colored with copics and some stickles on their wings. They're really beautiful in real person!! :)


I hope you like my cards and feel inspired but don't forget to visit Lawn Fawn blog to see the projects of the other DT members, they're always amazing!
