Wings of the Butterfly

The CR84FN  beautiful colors and the Moxie Fab World  Beautiful Borders Challenge inspired my card today.

I started with a beautiful piece of  Pink Paislee paper paired with one of my favorite sentiment stamps.


The background is a layering of acrylic paints, stamping and sponging. The butterflies are wood and have the same treatment using pink, white and black ink.  The stamps used on the background are from Hero Arts and include Moments definition and Rose Background Cling.

The sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps called Irish Blessing QQ0811-F

The lovely  CR84FN32 colors with inspiration photos courtesy of Martha Stewart:
