Butterfly

Hello, and thanks for visiting,   I bought Tim's Butterfly Duo a few weeks ago and this is the first time I've had to use it and this bit of the Mixed Media die that I got in March - where does the time go!  My butterfly was cut out from leftover sprayed paper, I highlighted the embossed parts with Cracked Pistachio and then coated it with Clear Rock Candy crackle paint. To give it a bit more depth I added a vellum butterfly underneath, again highlighting the embossed parts with Cracked Pistachio.  Both my backgrounds were coloured with Cracked Pistachio, Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade, and Iced Spruce added to the lower one.
I am entering this at:
  Mixed Media World - Bright colours
That's all for now,
Avril xx
