I'm a purdy butterfly

Have you seen the latest challenge at Oddball Art to add a butterfly or dragonfly.  As I'd prepared my challenge inspiration card I thought I'd do one just for fun :)

This gorgeous butterfly girl image (No 164) is available from Etsy.  If you want this or any other item from Lizzy's shop you can get 10% discount by quoting my code DTANDREA10 at checkout.

For a change I'm going to describe all the background first. 
I've used some red and black card stock and the red design paper is a Lemoncraft one.

The gold netting was saved from a bouquet of flowers I was given ages ago and I've only just used some :)

Flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  There are some tiny silver dragonfly beads which I found on Amazon.  The gold self adhesive gems and the 3D butterfly which is a Docrafts one were bought at Hobbycrafts.

So onto the actual image and here's a close up.

She's coloured with ProMarkers.  I decided to do her with firey wings which was the origination for all my colour scheme in this card.  Her hair was coloured with a combination of Copics and biro.  The image was cut out using a Spellbinders die and I've used some  vanilla ProMarker to edge it with.

Hope you like my just for fun card :)
