I started by stamping the Inkylicious butterfly collage stamp with Memento black ink onto white card and coloured it with coloursoft pencils, and using a gold gel pen to highlight the title and a Wink of Stella white brush pen for the white markings on the wings. I then tore around the image and used Distress inks, antique linen and tea dye I think, to tint and shade the card. The base card was embossed with a butterfly corner embossing folder from Sissix, and then shaded with the same distress inks. The patterned paper is from a vintage style 6x6 pad from The Works cut with a Spellbinder die. The pieces were assembled on the card along with some scraps of lace and some brown organza ribbon from my stash. The greeting was cut from gold mirri card with a Britania die and the fancy corner with a Memory Box die. I stamped and coloured two more butterflies and using silicon glue to give a little dimension stuck one over the original one and the other just below.
