This was really intricate but satisfying work. I made a series of 6 cards using different background papers so I vaired the colours in the butterfly. The butterfly was stamped in black and then inked in with a sponge dauber in blue and green and rose, then blended with orange and lime green chalk, then outlined and shaded with bright green or pink marker, then dotted with white gel pen along the antenna and lettering, and finally glazed with stickles in 2 colours for a saturated effect.
I added dew drops, gems and Close to my Heart buttons on the embossed background.
I highlighted some phrases on the butterflies as well. Click on photo for a closer look at details!
