A colouring discovery :)

I've made a colouring discovery - definitely one for sharing :)

But before I get to that I'll tell you about the image from Aurora Wings - Girl Flower Butterfly - Floating Hair and Gardenia Blooms.  Not actually sure which bit is the name but there's the link to it.

I decided to colour it with proMarkers in blues (with a tiny touch of purple so as not to distract from the main blue theme of the image).

The discovery I made was whilst messing about with a resin butterfly.  (Which I bought from Live and Love Crafts just by the way)  I just suddenly wondered if I could colour it, so I did and the result was fab!  You can see it o the left of the card below :)
The design papers I've used are from Santoro Gorjuss and Lili of the Valley with a bit of black card stock.  also added are some self adhesive gems in blue and black and some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.

If you've not already seen it I was glad to share my discovery
