The Challenge from Memory Box for the month of June is Watercolor.  It certainly is the popular medium now.  I had so many ideas for this card, but I decided to keep just the watercolor as the centerpiece.

I die cut the Memory Box die called Dizzy Butterflies.  Memory Box is known for their beautiful intricate dies and this one is no exception.  I cut it out of watercolor paper and painted it with Distress Ink using Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Twisted Citron.  I think they are my favorite colors.  I used the Memory Box Parker Lower Case alphabet to stamp "fly" and did it in a light blue embossing powder.  Seemed too bright, so I lightly sanded it which gave it some texture.  I added blue rhinestones in the middle of the flowers and it was finished!

Thank you for visiting.
