Nature - Viva la Verve week 3

Hi all! Here is the sketch from week 3 and my take on it!

Sentiment is from Verve. I decided to use an oval since it fit the sentiment a lot better.

The green back ground is done with Alcohol inks, simple solution and a piece of printer paper. I put a small amount of the simple solution into a container, then add in the alcohol inks until I get the color I want. I used a foam brush to paint the solution onto the crumbled up printer paper and then let dry. 

Fern stamps in the back ground are from Verve, as well. Butterfly is two dies used together from Memory Box. The solid color of the butterfly and the panel with the ribbon on it are from HOTP, it's a subtle yellow, believe it or not! :-)

Thanks for dropping by!
