Instructions

Hi there crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon here and I am back with a new project just in time for spring. Today I am pulling out some colors from the newest Distress Watercolor Pencil sets and pairing them with the Vault Scribbly butterflies from Tim Holtz and Sizzix for a clean and simple springy card.

Step 2: Gather up your Distress Watercolor Pencils. I used Saltwater Taffy, Victorian Velvet, and Wilted Violet for the first butterfly and for the second Broken China, Squeezed Lemonade and Evergreen Bough.

Step 3: Scribble your waterolor pencils over the die cuts. The more your scribble, the more pigment will be added to your paper!
