Mixed media card- color splash

Hello people,
It looks like I was away from my blog for ages. Feeling great after a much needed break.
Let's get back to work. Well today I am gonna show you all the card I made by getting inspired from " the craft shop banner".
I am so happy that I ordered my first set of distress ink just few days back from craft shop itself and the colors completely matched the theme.
Sorry no pictures as my little devil was around to help me create this art piece, surely will try a detailed explanation.
Well I started off by distressing my watercolor sheet with inks and splattered some water for blending.
 I made a handmade butterfly using old wax crayons and cake making butterfly shaped silicon mold. Shhhh my husband don't know about it though have not left any brick or corner blank in my home ;-).
Once dried I removed it from the mold and carefully broke the wings and stuck it over the watercolor sheet.
I later fussy cut the scissors and kept one  blade above and another below the butterfly to give realistic look. I applied gold glitter paint on few areas of butterfly and on scissors.
Layered watercolor sheet over white card stock which I distressed in same color combination.
 Used glass painting black liner for bordering the watercolor sheet which gave it a window effect.
Sentiment is handwritten.
 Hope you guys like it.
