I'm using the lovely Vine & Butterfly Set by 
Theresa Momber.  I love all of the elements in this set ~ the lovely vine, three gorgeous butterflies, a flower and several fab sentiments!  Below is a tutorial I put together using this awesome set with my Spectrum Aqua Markers and Spectrum Watercolor Paper.


Step 1: Stamp the Vine stamp on watercolor paper with white pigment ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.

Step 2: Select a variety of colors from the Spectrum Aqua Markers for the background.  I added my colors to a paint palette using the brush tip. {see list of colors below}


Step 3: Spritz the paper once with water and then begin coloring the background with an Water Brush.



Step 4: Continue adding new colors in small areas and blend them by going back and adding the previous color.   Use a variety of colors to fill the entire background piece.


Step 5: Stamp the butterflies in white pigment ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.  Then color with a waterbrush in a few shades of blue and green.


 Step 6: Finish coloring both butterflies an trim with scissors.



Spectrum Aqua Marker colors used.
