Anniversary Celebration

- from my first post

True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest to creating things new.

Happy first anniversary!! It's been a year since my first post on my blog in April last year and my first card creation sometime in spring last year! I have learned so much from the card making community and I am very very grateful for all the talented ladies and gentlemen out there. 

On my early days of card making, I used the same butterfly stamp to made cards. To celebrate my first anniversary, I made another card with the same butterfly stamp. I used watercolor to make a soft background for the butterfly on a piece of watercolor paper. The butterfly was first colored using watercolor paint and stamped on the card. Then I used a darker purple to color the butterfly stamp partially and stamped again to add some shading.

Here are all other butterfly cards I made throughout the year. I am planning to use the same stamp to make more butterfly cards. Happy happy anniversary!!

I am playing along with TIME OUT Challenges #81- I was inspired by the butterflies.
