Butterfly beauty

 Hi all just a quickie for today - well it was supposed to be lol.  Turned out a lot longer than intended.

For this I found a quote on the internet and have no idea who the author is.  

I have had the spotty  die which represents the trail of the butterly.  I  have had this die for an absolute age and I used this die previously but cut it twice through the centre but this time only used half the die.  

Last night I was making more backgrounds using distress inks and different types of card.  This one did not bode well as I used my gray sketch paper which soaked all the ink and did not blend together at all.  It was destined for the scrap bin but loved the colours so used it today for butterfly and background to the cut out dots. 

I cut my favourite butterfly and run it through an embossing folder by Paper Discovery 

Once embossed I used pink inka gold on the bottom part of it and for the top I used purple. For the tiny butterflies on the wings I used the pink again. 

Thank you for visiting and do hope you call in again real soon,  

I will be on holiday from 21 - 30th in Marrakech yayyyyyyy! so this may be the last posting for a while but who knows???????
