Social Butterfly Aquamarker Card

Good evening everyone, hope you are well! I have been challenging myself to use my existing stash in new ways and this is one of the results and I think its my favourite (for obvious reasons ;-)) I used Stazon inks to stamp my under used stamps on watercolour paper and then colour washed with my neglected aquamarkers. I scribbled the aquamarkers on my craft sheet then took the colour with a watery paint brush :-) I mounted the panel on coredinations card and then stamped all round my base card with butterfly stamps using Memento. I then placed the sentiment at an angle in the middle :-)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-) p.s if you havent entered my candy yet please pop by, link in the sidebar :-)
