Beautiful butterflies

We've a new challenge at Oddball Art today - our theme for this challenge is add a butterfly of dragonfly.  Lizzy has so may gorgeous images that can be used with this theme i had a job deciding which one I wanted to use.  In the end I've gone for image 70.

If you want to browse Lizzy's shop I've a voucher code you can use DTANDREA10 that will get you 10% off anything in the Oddball Art Etsy store.  You just need to quote my code at check out :)

So first up here's a close up of the image I've done.  She's coloured with ProMarkers and Copics.  I've used a Spellbinders die top cut her out and then some Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen.  Added to this is some embossing enamel around the left side of the image.

Onto the card itself now.  I've layered red and black card stock and then one design paper from Joy Crafts - Back in Time.  I've double cut the butterfly die edge with red and black card stock before layering it and mounting it onto the card.  

The brown butterflies at the right of the card are actually fussy cut from some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Collage Paper.

Behind the image is some black lace trim.

At the bottom right of the image I've added some black roses and stamen.  Final touches and a brass decorative corner and some black self adhesive gems.
