Butterflies and Dragonflies


I've been playing with my Magenta butterfly and dragonfly stamps for their July colour challenge:

I stamped the small butterfly cluster in Versamark and embossed in white, then smeared Distress Inks over the card and spattered with water.  Once dry, I stamped the cluster again in Dusty Concord in the top-right section, then in Victorian Velvet in the bottom-left corner.  I stamped the large dragonfly in Dusty Concord then highlighted it with a Sakura white Gelly Roll pen, and added a few white dots to the small butterflies.  I stamped another large dragonfly on white and softened the colour in with a water brush.  There's another butterfly stamp which you can just make out under the white dragonfly.  Added a few sequins in the colours of the challenge.
