You inspire me Butterflies

Hi there,

I will be guest-designing for the wonderful Watercolour Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers. This month the optional twist is "Mask":

  • stamp all three sizes of butterflies from the WPlus9 Flora and Fauna 2 set with Versafine (Smokey Gray) ... mask off each one to create an overlapping effect
  • stamp the sentiment from the Altenew Painted Butterflies set with that same grey waterproof ink
  • color the butterflies with Daniel Smith watercolors and add extra shading to the wings with Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils
  • add a subtle background with the same colors used on the butterflies and add some grey splatters
  • use natural charcoal for more shading around the butterflies
  • mount the watercolor panel onto a black cardbase and let two of the butterflies "fly off" the page

I can't wait to see your creations in the gallery.



  1. Your butterflies are beautifully masked and I love the colours! Thanks for being our Guest at Happy Little Stampers this month xx

  2. Gorgeous, Tanja! So glad you have the guest spot this month. Your butterflies and splatters are perfect!

  3. Such a lovely card Tanja and great masking. I love how the butterfly overlaps the end of the card. Great to have you as GD this month.
