HM Butterfly Spring


What could be better than lying in warm chocolate with flowers and butterflies all around?  

I made the background like this: I diecut butterfly shapes from watercolour paper, coloured them with water-based pens and spritzed with water a lot, then printed them onto a large sheet of wet watercolour paper.  

House mouse is stamped, coloured, then cut out and applied to the background.

Image: House Mouse

Sentiment stamp: unbranded

Also: Copics, water-based pens, white Sharpie, Perfect Pearls mist, Opal Dust
