Take Flight

So I have been reading tutorials and trying new techniques this month.  I saw this tutorial on STAMPlorations but I cannot find the post to give Shery credit. I usually have the supplies, it is just using the supplies in a new way.

This is a timeless TAC stamp.  I embossed the butterfly in black embossing powder on watercolor paper.  Then I put watercolor on the butterfly wings and added extra so it would drip down.  Once it dried, I stamped grunge on the outside of the card.  I stamped the sentiment by th butterfly and because the watercolor paper is rough, it added extra grunge to the sentiment.
