Die cuts and punches at Jade's Sparkling Butterflies

Hi everyone. Here is my DT card for the new challenge at Jade's Sparkling Butterflies.

Our sponsor for this fortnight is:

The image I have used is the super cute Benson Bear Couples, available to buy here.

 This time the optional theme is Use Die Cuts or Punches. I've used the following dies:
X Cut Doilie Die
Trimcraft Torn Edge Nesting Dies
Sizzix Thinlits Butterflies
Tonic Pinhole Square Nesting Die

My papers are Trimcraft First Edition Love Story, which I've distressed with Tea Dye distress ink. 

I printed the image onto Crafter's Companion Watercolour Card and I've used Spectrum Aqua markers blended with a little water for my colouring. I rarely use watercolours so I'm fairly happy with the result. 

Spectrum Aqua colours used are:
Bud Green 

You can join in our challenge here and please do follow the link to see all the other fabulous DT creations.

Thank you for visiting today and for all your lovely comments.
