CTS 235

I had so much fun with the sketch.  I thought the different widths of stripes could be represented really well with Washi Tape.  Then, I had such a good time creating the jar where the butterflies had cocooned with the stick still remaining in the jar while the newly hatched butterflies were flying away.  The watercolor pencils and blender pens were perfect for adding color to the butterflies and their former home.  This makes me want to "grow a butterfly" again this spring and recreate the experience of the card again in real life.  I love feeding and taking care of caterpillars until they cocoon in a jar (or butterfly habitat) and then eventually hatch after they've undergone their metamorphosis into a butterfly.  One of my favorite memories is releasing butterflies right off my front porch with my children.
