Just For Fun - wk 3

Hi there!  I needed to make a birthday card for my sister & she loves butterflies so I combined that with this weeks ~JUST FOR FUN~ challenge, which is all about insects!!!!  I didn't really feel like getting lots of papers & embelishments out so I have stamped this massive 14cm x 14cm butterfly from Elusive Images straight onto the card.


I coloured in with Inktense watercolour pencils, adding a bit of glitter here & there.  I couldn't cope with the white space so I used some very watered down acrylic paint and just 'blobbed' it on hahaha Then I went round the edges of the butterfly with my trusty white Posca pen!

Thank you for looking today, have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing :-D HUGS XXX
