Butterflies and Flowers

I just love the Penny Black stamp 'Soft Wings' 40-099, it is such a beautiful butterfly stamp and I have just managed to get my hands on it and finally ink it up.























To make  the base design, I inked up 'Delicate Florals' 40-103 with Tombow markers and repeat stamped into the corner of some watercolour card.  The sentiment is from the new transparent set 'Petal Party'  30-113 and has been stamped using Versafine black ink.  I then hand drew the border (yes it is wonky....I did that on purpose :)  ).

The butterfly was then stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and then stamped again onto a scratch piece of white card.  The butterfly was water coloured with inktense pencils and then mounted onto the main panel using dimensional glue.

Tomorrow I will be sharing another card using some of the new stamps so do pop back if you have time.

The vibrancy of the Inktense pencils with the Tombow softness on the flowers is delightful & I do love that Vintage Sepia. Your framing is beautiful with the perfect amount of wonkiness.
