Purple Ombre

Hi everyone, I painted a few more butterflies with twinkling H2Os and thought I'd use some in a few challenges.

At Inkspirational the theme is ombre.

At CASology the theme is friend.

Thinking of friends makes me smile!

At Sister Act Card Challenge it's an anything goes theme.

At Cuttlebug Mania the theme is wildlife. I hope a butterfly is wild enough! You also need to use a manual machine like a Big Shot. I cut my 2 dies with my Cuttlebug.

Edited to add: I'm also linking up to the love and friendship challenge at Uniko Studio. Thanks Sandie!

Memory Box large circle burst; Hero Arts antique engravings butterfly stamp; versafine ink & clear embossing powder; Twinkling H2Os; purple coloured card stock; Penny Black smile die and distress inks.

Thanks for visiting,
