Playing in Paradise #73 - Inspired by Watercolour

You may not already know this, but our very own Angela is a very talented watercolour painter as well as papercrafter (and many many other titles, of course!). This week for Playing in Paradise #73 she's challenging us to be inspired by watercolour:
PPC #73

I printed out the inspiration photo - something I rarely do - because it was impossible for me to prompt myself with words this time. After carrying it around in my books for days, I tried to separate some of the elements from the final picture - wavy lines, colours, etc. When I did that, Konnichiwa came to mind:
Supplies: papers from Basic Grey "Konnichiwa;"
butterfly dies from Spellbinders;
scrap white vellum;
Martha Stewart butterfly punch;
Vintage Photo distress ink;
sentiment stamp from AmyR Designs
Get inky & play along with us - Playing in Paradise #73 is open until next Thursday, July 5 (holy cow, July already?!)

Don't forget to check out what the other designers have been up to!

Lovely, the wavy paper really gives it the water movement.
Great take on the prompt :)
Thanks for laying out your supply list too.

Ohh I like how you pulled all that from the inspiration photo. Your card is beautiful.

You're right - that paper does have a very watercolour feel - and it's so contemporary, too! I love the addition of vellum - I was hoping someone would do something inspired by the style of the image prompt - good for you!

I can see why you chose that paper....not sure how I'd cope with this type of challenge!!
Love the colours and the vellum butterflies just add that subtle light detail :0)
