Butterfly Hope

I used a couple older Simon Says Stamp dies to make a card today.  I used the Devonshire and Paulina Butterfly dies along with the Clustered Leaves die...
I took a piece of watercolor paper, folded it with my score board, then used a water brush to add some water to one side of the fold.  I dotted the wet side with some drops of ink, then folded the other side to the inked side.  When you open the paper, the ink has bled over to the other side, and both sides of the paper look similar...like a butterfly should.  I covered the colored watercolor paper with the outlined butterfly and attached the butterfly over the leaves.  I added some silver dots to the leaves.  Here's a close up...
The sentiment is from an old, retired set of stamps from Simon...I've added the pic to the stamps below, even though the link will not work.   Ah, hope...what a wonderful thing!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
