Watercolour Crayon Background

SU Clockworks, Papillon Potpourri
Using FabFriday's colours and LessIsMore's theme of "up in the air". AlphabetChallenge wants things with wings and DaringCardmakers want butterflies.
I didn't have inks in the colours so used watercolour pencils instead. I just crayoned on the Clockworks stamps & then misted with water before stamping - quite successful experiment i think! It gave a watercolour textured effect I rather like!

Hope your weekend's going well!

SU card: Whisper White, Wild Wasabi
SU ink: White
