Meadow Butterflies

Hi, I was inspired to make this card by the photo inspiration at Addicted to Stamps and More.

I created my sky and meadow using distress inks, then stamped one of the grass stamps from Annabelle's All Things Grow set, with distress ink.  I coloured my butterflies with Prismacolor pencils

The sentiment is from Annabelle Stamps Standing Tall set.

I'm also going to enter the Anything Goes challenge at Make It Monday.

Materials used: Annabelle Stamps as above; Technique Tuesday butterfly stamp and an old butterfly stamp that I borrowed yet again from my sister!; distress inks; Prismacolor pencils; Versafine ink.

Thanks for visiting :)
