Fly, Fly Butterfly

That's the challenge at Daring Cardmakers this week. For my card I've used a backing paper from the Marianne Beautiful Butterflies pad. The sentiment is by Inkylicious called Far Away. I've stamped it onto a Nestie that has been coloured with purple and blue Pan Pastels. The ribbon is purple with a blue tinge and edge. The butterfly was stamped onto Clearly For Art film with a Chocolate Baroque stamp from the Tangled Garden set and coloured with blue and purple alcohol inks but you can hardly see the stamped image. I've then heated it with a heat gun and shaped it. I've since found out that you can do this with good acetate packaging but it is not quite as thick. I've tried it with acetate from a Bigz die and a Cuttlebug embossing folder so a good excuse to buy more of these.  A few gems and it's finished. I'm also entering this into the Pan Pastels challenge which is to use two colours - Blue & Purple
