Inspired By #53 challenge.

The bows became watercolored butterflies:))
I spent an evening enjoying the birth of this one while listening to Hillsong United. Starting with a wash of colors from Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor 36 around the stamped butterflies. Let it dry and added details with SEVERAL brands of markers:) Ziggys, Spectrum Aqua, Altenew Alcohol, and a few Distress. In  hindsight, I wish I had turned the camera on to go back and see the various stages of coloring. Sigh, maybe next time!..the watercolor paper of Strathmore 300 Cold Press 80lb. I LOVE the tooth on this paper.
Sentiment is from This set.
