Inspiration from My Garden

Hello! Today I was inspired to create a card from a photo of a swallowtail butterfly that I recently captured in my garden.  I used a large Butterfly stamp from Repeat Impressions.  After stamping it on White CS with Tuxedo Black ink, I masked the image and stamped a flower from GKD A Year of Flower with Distress Ink Picked Raspberry.  I water colored the flower with the same ink and added a halo of Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  The butterfly was colored with Copics.  Added the sentiment from a Power Power stamp set using the black ink.  Finished with a card base of Black CS and a Bright Pink mat.
