Can never have too many butterflies!

This is a butterfly from the stamp set Flights of Fancy by Crafters Companion.  I've coloured it up with the Aquablend pencils (Primary Set) and then done a quick overlay with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers (Clear Overlay and Perfect Pastels).

It's been stamped with an archival black ink onto Bristol Smooth cardstock and then coloured with the Aquablend pencils and a waterbrush.  For the sparkle markers, you must move quickly and brush it over your piece without "working it", otherwise, the marker will reactivate the pencil and move the colour.

It's hard to see the sparkle in the photo, so I'm attaching a pic taken before I made it into a card.  It's really yummy in person and the light pastels really make the pencil more vibrant if you match the tones (Cosmos used on the pink; Moonstone on the blue/green; clear on the Butterfly body).

The cardstock, sentiment, circle die and embossing folder are from Stampin' Up.

Thanks for looking.
