Fly by .... butterfly

Made this Birthday card with a butterfly & who doesn't like a butterfly?

Used a 5 x 7 inch white card base and then diecut some watercolour paper.  I stamped the butterfly (Darkroom Door) in Archival black ink and used Distress ink colours and a waterbrush to colour the image. I thoroughly dried the paper matt and then (using a stamp positioner) overstamped with more Archival black ink and heat embossed with detail clear embossing powder.  The background was coloured with distress ink and some ink was removed by adding water and blotting off with a piece of kitchen roll.  This was then matted onto black card.

The sentiment was stamped in Versafine black ink on white card, trimmed and again matted onto black card.

Both image and sentiment where then applied to the card front on foam pads. three gems were added to finish the card.
