Butterfly Sprite

Today we have a new Showcase at Aurora Wings, it is a lovely new sprite - Butterfly Sprite.

She comes in two different versions - Fancy wings and Simple Wings.

For my card today, I have used Fancy wings.

I printed her onto watercolor paper and added some flowers stamps by Polka Doodles, I then masked off the sprite and used a smooshing technique with Tambai Gansai watercolors for the background in a mix of reds, oranges and yellows and a little bit of gold.

once it was dry I sprayed with Perfect Pearls for a lovely iridescent finish.

When it came to coloring my sprite, I used Copics for the skin and petals, then decided to try painting the wings with some mica powders I have had for ages but never used.

Finally I matted onto brown and cream card and a lovely designer paper, adding a little dandelion and hand tied bow.
