Butterflies for Allsorts Challenge

Hello and thanks so much for visiting! It's Saturday, that means it's time for a new theme at Allsorts challenge and this week it's all about Butterflies, chosen by Helene. Hope you'll join in for a chance to win this week's prize which is a  £15 voucher from WowVow.

I thought this cute image featuring Mimi and her box of butterflies from the Penny Black set Sweet Smiles was perfect for this theme ... it's been a while since I used it!

Distress inks Tumbled GlassBlueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet were used on bristol vellum paper to ink up the background with a circle mask in place. After removing the mask, I stamped the image directly onto the inked paper then stamped her again on a scrap piece of white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo ink. I colored her using a mix of Copic markers and Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. She and one of her butterflies have then been fussy cut using my Cutterbee scissors

Before adhering her to the card I used Penny Black's stamp Blossom Branch to create a border of flowers. Then I added the die cut "hill" - similar die set - and then Mimi was attached with foam tape.
The sentiment is from the Penny Black Set Happy Wishes stamped directly onto the card front. It's hard to see but I brushed some wink of stella glitter over the rose and butterflies.

A close up below ... I think I'll fussy cut the second butterfly as well because it's blending too much into the background.
