Butterfly Magic

Today I'm sharing a very simply styled card to showcase this image Butterfly Magic.  I'd seen photos of huge moths and butterflies and thought it might be fun to try and recreate something like this in a digi image.

You can find Butterfly Magic in my Etsy shop - check out the bottom of my post for a 20% discount code off images in my shop

I've coloured the image here with Copics, ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  I wanted the butterfly to pop so I've used some bright oranges and reds.

Once I'd finished the image I cut it large and distressed the edges with ink from Tim Holtz (black soot) and a Tonic solutions tool.  The image has been mounted onto some distressed black card.

Added to this just to add a little more interest are a few rhine stones, two silver dragonfly beads and I've also stencilled the word beauty in black soot ink onto the card.

This has been created as part of the inspiration for the Passionate Paper Creations sponsorship event for this week :D
