Fusion Challenge - Bright Butterfly

Hi friends! I was so drawn to the colors in the inspiration photo at the Fusion Card Challenge (see below) that I had to play along. LOVE smooshing some distress ink colors onto Tim Holtz water color paper - Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed. I used the elegant MFT Dienamics Rose with Overlay and cut the overlay piece from PTI's True Black card stock. The butterfly is from Heidi Swapp and was painted with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Paint and I finger painted on some black enamel accents. I added a layer of glossy accents to the butterfly, stamped the sentiment on a vellum flag and layered everything onto a piece of True Black card stock embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.

Super simple, yet the colors really pop off the black. And look how elegant that flower is when you add a layer of Clear Wink of Stella - SWOON!

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a GREAT week. Take care now, ya hear?
