Hippity Hop

Well, today is Monday - only three days left till vacation!!  Maybe I'll have time to make a few paper projects....

Here is my project for today - a "flat" card - no pop dots, no layers, no ribbon, no buttons, brads, or anything that pops off the page.  I used the butterfly from "Now and Always," and the sentiments from "Faith Blooms."  This was really the first time I used watercolor pencils - I had a little trouble controlling the water but, overall, I am happy with the result and I'll try it again soon!  I thought about taking a craft knife around the butterfly wings to make them pop out but I think I'll try that on my next butterfly project.


Have a happy Monday and visit all the other participants and remember to leave them some love.
