In This World, Playful Backgrounds, Cupcakes & Carousels DSP with #GDP078

I apparently have a thing for using butterflies at the moment, this butterfly is from the In This World stamp set. I have used this week's Global Design Project #078 Sketch Challenge and the colours from the Cupcakes & Carousels Paper Stack. I started by stamping the butterfly in Archival Basic Black Ink, next I took the Watercolor Pencils and coloured in the butterfly with the colours below to match the paper stack blending them with the Aqua Painters. I cut out the image using the Stitched Shapes Framelits in the Big Shot, I also cut out a larger circle from Bermuda Bay in the Glimmer Paper Assortment in the Sale-a-Bration brochure. I stamped the Playful Background stamp on Calypso Coral card stock in Versamark Ink to give a subtle effect. I added patterned paper from Cupcakes & Carousels Paper Stack and the ombre Calypso Coral ribbon from the Cupcakes & Carousel Embellishment Kit. To finish the card I added Wink of Stella to the butterfly for a subtle shine.
