Those butterflies are so cool with the splats, Christine. Have not heard of this graphite based watercolour. Might have to try out yours and then add it to my wish list. xx

Lovely card Christine...the splats behind the butterflies really helps to bring attention to them and showcases their details.

OH Wow! I have that stamp and it has never seen ink! Now that I see yours, that's a different story! How incredibly artsy this is using black and white and just the splatters of color. LOVE this!
