Pretty grape butterflies

Afternoon All 

I hope you are all safe and well after yesterdays storms
Nice weather here today the sun is shinning.

Still worried about Mum I am sure she is doing too much but I must
remember I am powerless over people, places and things.

Very glad I have my crafting to take my mind off this "stressful" time.


Here is my card for today.

I have been using my Phill Martin inks sprays and glitter to make this card.

First I stamped the butterflies with black arkival inks using Chloes stamp

Then sprayed the paper with Grape ink to make the splattered background.

Then using my wax pencils coloured in the butterflies using all shades of grape to highlight
the butterflies 

Had a  problem the spray bottle leaked all over the place
and soaked the paper thought it was a mistake but ....

allowed it to dry and press so nothing gets thrown away!!!

Added it to a white card blank and added 3 dots of glitter. 

I hope you like it - I am sure it could be used for several different occasions
for that Special Lady.

I would like to enter it for the following

Will be off to make a cuppa now and finish watching

May even get out my watercolours and have a go
very relaxing :)
