What the Doodle: Butterfly

What the Doodle: Butterfly is such a fun set!! It really allows you to play with different colour combinations and it is a great size for a focal image on a card.
I started by stamping a white card front with Hibiscus Burst ink using Watercolour Wonder to create bold horizontal stripes. This was cut with a Stitched Rectangle die and adhered to a Hisbiscus Burst card base. 
"Enjoy" was stamped with Winter Wisteria ink and the rest of the sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with White Detail Embossing powder.

Butterfly Detail

A solid butterfly was die cut from white card stock and attached to the card front. A second butterfly was cut with the detailed die, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured with copic markers. I glued it to the first die cut along the body and curled the wings to create added dimension.
Yellow and purple Adhesive Sparkles (Close To My Heart) are the finishing touch!!
