Blue & Green Butterfly

Hi, I only managed to get one card done today, not quite what I planned, Oh well. I've used another butterfly image that I just had to have, but had't inked up yet!!

I stamped and embossed the butterfly and coloured with my tombows, dark blue, light blue and sea green. I added a touch of black rainbow kindy glitz to the spots and body. The colours don't look as defined as they do IRL.

I'm entering the challenge over at CAS(E) this Sketch.
Here is the sketch.

I trawled through my snippets of cardstock to find some to match the butterfly, so I'm also able to enter the Snippets Playground over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop too!

Materials used: Penny Black Social Butterfly stamp; Tombows; Kindy Glitz; cardstock & sentiment sticker from stash.
Thanks for looking :)
