Monarch Butterfly

I had bought the Butterfly Basics stamp set and coordinating thinlits from the Occasions Catalogue and was happy to see that they are included in the 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue along with a new butterfly bundle.  The stamp set is Watercolor Wings and the coordinating framelits are Bold Butterfly.  The really great thing is that the framelits and thinlits work with both stamp sets.

My card today uses the Watercolor Wings set - a multi step set.  I stamped the bold image with pumpkin pie and for the next layer used Tangelo Twist ink.  The final detail was added with Memento Black.  I cut out the image using the coordinating framelit and then cut out the detailed butterfly in Basic Black to layer on top.

The background was created by scribbling Smoky Slate ink onto a clear block, spritzing it with a bit of water and then "stamping" onto the white cardstock.
