Beautiful Butterflies

Whenever I see the phrase "beautiful butterfly", I think of Heimlich from A Bugs Life. That character was so funny.

Well. I have some more beautiful butterflies to share. I got a new Inkadinkado stamp set. It has lots of pretty butterflies.

For the outside, I stamped the butterflies in Black Archival ink and colored them in with my Distress Markers and a water brush. I cut them out and mounted them on a panel that I embossed and inked with Dusty Concord. Look close...I even stamped the background layer with the butterflies. :)

I added some butterflies to the corners on the inside and in the back.

I could not stop there! I had to do more...

Here is a blue and yellow card using Tumbled Glass and Scattered Straw.

I had so much fun with these stamps. I even had fun with my markers for a change. LOL
