Butterfly Magic

I don't know of anyone who doesn't love butterflies.  They bring a smile to faces old and young, and can change someone's day.  They symbolise hope and transformation, and are indeed
magical creatures.

These butterflies are stamped onto semi-gloss card,  then coloured with distress inks (that card makes the ink sort of clot together),.  I dabbed the pad onto acetate, spritzed with water and painted. When dry I added Wink of Stella to the main parts.

The sparkly square is a lace patterned stamp. I stamped white card with versamark ink, and heat embossed with Kaliedoscope embossing powder, then spritzed with pale blue homemade mica mist, wiping off the excess.  The lace pattern doesn't really show, but it looks pretty and vari-coloured, and is quite a gritty texture.

Butterflies stamp: Tanda
Sentiment stamp: Kaisercraft
Oval die: Spellbinders
EF: Project Life
Lace scraps, ribbon, pearls

The line of  F&F bingo I chose is DYOT-distress-diecut-sparkle mist/glitter.
