Summer Butterflies

I haven't done water colouring for such a long time and it was so much fun to renew our acquaintance. The cards done by the DT were just amazing and so inspiring (I did tuck a few away in my inspiration photo folder).  I think my technique has changed since Copics have come into my life as I was trying to colour the Copic way which works to a point.   

And just as I realised it was possible I would miss Retro Sketches and with no ideas in my head, I came across the latest Trigger Tuesday challenge and these gorgeous colours from Play Date Cafe.  Unfortunately watercolour paper does not work with white which may count me out of PDCC but I love my butterflies and hope to do more colouring in the near future.
