I needed a card for my other's half's Mum as it was her birthday last Monday so this challenge fitted in perfectly ! I started with the background and as usual you can't see alot of it, but I had fun making it ! I stamped various stamps from an Elusive Images set with Versamark then used Pan Pastels over the top. The small butterflies are The Stamp Man stamps. The border along the bottom is a Wendy Vecchi stamp and I stamped the image and then lightly drew around the shape of the stamp and cut it out, then blended DI around the edge. The main image is also a Wendy Vecchi stamp, which I stamped then watercoloured using DI. I then masked it over and stamped over the top with a Katzlekraft text stamp.
The ribbon is seam binding that I've coloured using Wild Honey Distress Stains. The butterfly is a Tim Holtz mini die and the swirl is the Tim Holtz Elegant Flourish die.
