Watercolour butterfly card

Good afternoon everyone, warm and sunny here today.
I hope you all have the same :)
As it's Saturday once again I have another 'Less is More'
card to show you once more.
I was so happy when I saw this week's theme was to use
I seem to have done nothing else on my cards just lately.
 As you may just have noticed lol. ( Check out my
earlier card it would have been ideal I think....darn it!)
Anyway I did a few splats of watercolour and added
my new butterfly die after using more watercolour
on that also.
Hope you like it,and stayed tuned........ as there will be
 more of course :)
ps. Our son has put his gorgeous detached 4 bed house on the market.
It's only been a few days and he has been offered the full asking
price already!
 I am not surprised though, sneaky peek below.
It has 4 toilets !, main bathroom, 2 en suites and a downstairs loo.
Wish we could buy it but we want a bungalow again.
They have to move to be nearer schools for our grandson...such a
shame as they love it.Corner plot, quiet area, great field views at
 the back......sighs!

another stunningly gorgeous card, viv!! you and watercoloring are a match made in heaven!! (your son's house looks lovely!)

Sue said...

WOW! This is stunning Viv. I love the background colours and delicate butterfly.
Congrats to your Son for selling his house so quickly, I am not surprised though as it looks and sounds lovely.
hugs Sue xx

Darnell said...

I love you, too, Vee! Thank you for making me blush with your sweet compliments and for joining in my NBUS Challenge again with this breathtaking card of yours! I love the watercolor splatterings on the card and the banner and how your butterfly looks so ethereal sitting there!!

That's sad about the house needing to be sold; it's a beaut, but I applaud your son and his wife for putting the schooling first at this point in their lives!!

Enjoy the weekend! Hugs, Dee

(P.S. My neighbor Rae would do the same thing!! She would make me jump a flippin' foot when she would suddenly pound on the garage door in the early years when I used to make cards out there! I never knew when she was coming and there was no way to ignore her! I guess this was a way to do our good deed for the day!!)

wow super card viv ... lovely "splash" of colour ... great news about your sons house selling ... can you give me any tips as trying to sell my dear Mum (rip) flat ... the agent is driving us mad and we have now put it in an additional agents hands too ... people's feedback was "we don't want ground floor" ... well actually why are you looking at ground floor then ... oops sorry to attack your post lol ... have a great week and happy crafting love sandy xx

Gorgeous creation Viv, had a look at your gerbera too, it is also a stunner!
Perhaps your son could send some buyers my way, over 60 viewings is a LOT of tidying of the craft room lol!
Thanks for joining us at Less is More

Thanks Sandy...........erm well they used an online agent as it was very cheap. Not sold yet but great to have a buyer straight away.Still lots wanting to look round it yet too !

I was looking for a special word for your card. I think "magnificant" is the word I was looking for. Wundervoll gro├čartig super !!

When you do this it looks like beautiful art, when I do it one thinks I spilled the ink! You have such an eye for this! ~Diane

Laurie Unger said...

Wowza! I really like this! I had a bit of a laugh on how you described your Son's house. It's the English expressions or slang that are so different from us here in the US. ;-)

Tracey said...

Lovely card, really nice. Great news about sons house being sold so quickly. We are just in process of moving house (have been for nearly 5 months), not a quick process. Tracey R

Deepti said...
