Born to Fly

Another Friday, another Friends with Flair!  Happy Friday Unity peeps!
I was inspired to make these cards last month when I saw the technique and link in Two Peas gallery but of course I forgot to bookmark it and now can't find my original inspiration.  :(
I used watercolor paper and stamped the trio of butterflies from Unity's Love Never Fails in black ink and then stamped the single butterfly from the kit in watermark ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.  I colored the top of the card with watercolor crayons and then sprayed with water and used the heat gun to push the water down the paper for a drippy effect. 


The sentiments are from the Dream Big Itty Bitty and Life Becoming (born to fly).  I used the leftover watercolor paper to make the sentiment banners and added some bling underneath.
Happy Friday all!
