Embossing Flowers and Butterflies

Over the last couple of weeks, I've tried to emboss and color/paint some flowers and butterflies. I did a little at a time and now have a bit of a stash.

The flowers are embossed white onto vellum, then sponged with Memento chalk inks from the back. The smaller butterflies are done with the same method.

The larger butterflies were stamped with Staz On black ink, then I colored with Inktense watercolor pencils. Then I used a water brush and water to blend the colors together a little. The colors from Inktense pencils are vibrant and beautiful. After they dried, I used some Liquid Pearls to add some dimension to them. I am pretty certain this butterfly is by GKD but I forgot to write which one on the backs like I usually do. Sometimes there is quite a long delay between stamping and coloring for me, and I'm sorry I can't remember which stamp it is.

Thank you so much for coming by!!!
