trying out water color stripes

Kristina Werner always inspires me.  She is a good teacher.  I was watching her video on how to get these water color stripes without getting mud.  I quite like how it turned out it’s not as smooth as hers and it’s not as easy as it looks but i still like the soft blending.  This is the first one i made.  I made another today but it’s too dark outside to photgraph it.  The one today has more brilliance to the stripes and the stripes are a bit more even .  I used two layers for each butterfly using the delicate die for both layers, one in white and one in blue.  I had thought to use the solid die for the bottom of the butterfly but i wanted that background to show through.  I’m loving my Nuovo drops.  (if you order on-line from JoAnn fabrics there is usually a 30% off coupon) I also added some of my clear acrylic sequins made with my MFT die. I used Memento ink on the flowers, just used my little dew drop ink pads and inked direct to the stamp.
