Beautiful Butterflies

This is one of my recent card makes using some of my favourite stamps because they have butterflies and daisies - two things I love! The stamps are from Elusive Images Butterfly Daisy Collage themeplate.

I've used Derwent Inktense pencils and Distress Inks to colour all the images and although I couldn't get it to show in the photographs I went over the butterfly and some of the 3D daisies with a Versamark pen and heat embossed with Detail Clear EP. The background paper is from the Artylicious Simple Elegance designer paper pack and I also punched the leafy sprays from another sheet from the same pack.

Ingredients : Stamps, Designer Papers, Derwent Inktense pencils, Distress Inkpads all from Graphicus
Nestabilities Labels 8 from Once Upon a Stamp
Everything else was from my stash.

Hope you're all having a nice relaxing weekend doing what you like best.
