Butterfly Symphony

Hello friends, I can share this card now as it has arrived at the recipients house - I love 'mixing it up' and trying different things - Mixed Media intrigues me and this is the result of some creative time...

The background has been stamped using a script background stamp and sponged using Imagine Crafts Memento Ink in Summer Sky.  A cut/embossed Spellbinders Mary Border has been layered onto white card and added to the script layer - slightly off centred using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner.

A butterfly from Penny Black inc has been heated embossed using white and sponged with yellow and orange ink,  An IndigoBlu butterfly has been stamped and coloured using Chameleon Pens and then layered onto the larger butterfly - these have then been layered onto the Mary Strip using liquid glue.

Inking and splattering have followed - in no particular order, finishing off with Imagine Crafts Goosebumps in Dandelion and Tangerine.  Large Want2Scrap Pearls have been added to the braid and the butterfly's body.
