Stipple Butterfly

Hello, everyone.  Here is my latest creation for two challenges today. I originally had this mounted on a white card base, but the tree back ground just got lost, so I switched it up to black.

I have no idea who makes this tree limb back ground stamp. I got it at a stamp fair and forgot to mark it. I used Mojito green ink from Fresh Ink to stamp it with. Cut it up, added some fum foam to the back and stuck it on.

Recognize this butterfly? It's the retired stipple butterfly from Stamin Up! I stamped it on Fabriano hot press watercolor paper (recent purchase off of Amazon, cheaper than Arches, works the same) and used the Zig real brush water color pens and a water brush to color this beauty up. Fussy cut it out, added wire antenna's along with some foam square for dimension and called it done.

OK, back to my weekend chores now. Thanks for stopping by!

The butterfly is beautiful and love the background stamp you used. Glad you found a bargain on watercolor paper. Always fun to find a real deal.
