This week I have used a fabulous digi from Delicious Doodles called Kissing Butterflies. I adore butterflies and this is a gorgeous image which I thought would work really well in a Black and White colourscheme. I printed a circle around the image and stuck to pale flesh tones, black & grey for colouring in Promarkers adding lots of Stickles glue to the butterflies.

The swirly paper is from a new paper pad I have had from Artoz which are all black and white papers. There is tons of glitter on the swirls. I used one of my new Martha Stewart punches on a scrap of white card and added a stitched ribbon from Craftwork Cards. The image is mounted on 3d foam. The sentiment has been layered onto scraps of card to make it pop from the background better.
