The background for this card is a piece of watercolour card dipped into Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron Distress inks which I smooshed on my craft sheet and sprayed with water and Glimmer Mist. I dried with a heat gun then stamped the gorgeous Clarity stamp, Butterfly Montage (I have had this stamp for years and never used it before!) with Imperial Purple Versafine. Then I stamped the main butterfly from the Montage stamp again three times on odd bits of card from my scraps box, in black Versafine and embossed with clear powder. I water coloured them with the same inks then I fussy cut them out. You can buy the large butterfly separate but I don't have it. I then painted each butterfly with Ranger Rock Candy Crackle Paint and left them to dry naturally - the crackle effects looks gorgeous but I am not sure how well you can see it in the photo. The sentiment is also Clarity, stamped in Imperial Purple and embossed with clear powder then cut out. I glued the three butterflies and the sentiment to my card. The mesh behind the two butterflies on the right is on a roll from a DIY store. It comes white and I coloured it purple with a Promarker. A few sequins for added bling and a purple card base then its all done!
