(2011 Card #72) Butterfly

Digital "Rose Butterfly" by Crissy Armstrong found at, I elongated it just a bit when printing. I painted it with LuminArte powdered pigments mixed with gum arabic. The upper right corner above the rose is really the same color as the rest of background inside the butterfly (I just couldn't get the flash out!) The background was stamped with ColorBox Chalk inkpad Rouge, using Stampendous Marble Texture Cube Then overstamped with Ranger Dusty Concord using All Night Media stamp (speckles Or My idea of Polka Dots hehe) Then distressed edges & inked with Dusty concord plus a little smudged on face of BG.

Sentiment by Nina Bracket's Elegant Verses found at GinaK Designs cut out with Spellbinder's Flying Beauities I then inked around the edges while still in the die with Rouge, the inked edges with Dusty Concord. Silver pearls from Card base is "Silver" Gemstones paper from Joann's.

Ribbon rose made with a pink & a purple wired ribbon tied together to start & followed tutorial found at
