COF- Butterflies

I am a member in a group at Splitcoaststampers called Crafters of Faith.  (aka COF). Michelle is our hostess for June, and here is her challenge:

June 2019: Hostess Michelle (mybearybest)
Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.Challenge: Keeping it simple with "feature butterflies on your project". I know how the summer months can be! And butterflies have always been a favorite of mine!

Here are my cards for the June Challenge


 I watercolored the images on Canson Mixed Media paper. I used Arteza watercolor brush pens for the backgrounds and the butterflies. I added wink of Stella over the butterflies and on card 2 over the ribbon.
 The images are Graciellie Designs and can also be found at Unity Stamps. I love the uplifting sentiments- these will go to my daughters, I will have to decide which one goes to which daughter......
  I scribbled the waterbrush color on a blank stamp block and spritzed with water, then placed the Canson paper over the block.  I swiped the waterbrush over a bubble wrap piece and spritzed with water and that is the bubble like look on the backgrounds  On the 2nd card, I used a Unity stamp and added a 2nd stamped image in purple for the background.
 Sequins and twine finished the first card.  The 2nd card, I used a Copic marker on white ribbon to match the card. (lovely Lilac SU and B53 on the ribbon). I added Wink of Stella over the top for shimmer.

 What color combo is your favorite???
