Blue Swallowtail

Hello All,

At least I think it is a swallowtail... Please correct me if I'm wrong but that isn't why I am here. I am here to enter Color My Heart Color Dare challenge. Their monochromatic color palette happens to be my favorite color, blue. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

The blue background was done awhile ago using a gel plate, watercolor paints, and DI. I added shades of blue of DI and watercolor directly onto the gel plate- sprayed some water on the plate and laid it down on the watercolor paper. I made four or five backgrounds but this one was the first generation and my favorite.

Above: The panel is quite small so I thought it would be a good idea to offset the panel to the corner of the card. Left/Below: The butterflies are actually from an Anna Griffin Mink foiling package. The butterflies were colored using Copic Markers and then brought it to the Mink for foiling. I used a black glitter sheet for the butterflies- pulled it through the Mink, peeled off the sheet, and there before me, glittery blue butterflies. Right/Bottom: I added a smattering of gold acrylic paint and thought it would be a perfect way to highlight the sentiment.
