Creative Chemistry Revisited - Mk IV and Inspired By All The Little Things


I've been catching up with my Creative Chemistry homework.  Week 4's homework was to use archival ink on your project.  The background text is partially inked with Versafine Onyx Black, but the butterflies panel is stamped with Archival.

I've been busy with DT assignments, but made some time to play along with Inspired By All The Little Things, where they've got this gorgeous inspiration photo:


As much as I was inspired by the photo, I was also inspired by guest designer Ardyth's interpretation.  She has this knack of stripping down the elements of an inspiration card or graphic and rebuilding it in her own innate style, yet still managing to retain the essence of the inspiration - and keep it CAS!

Here's my interpretation, influenced by Ardyth's interpretation.
