Landing Butterflies

I enjoyed incorporating graph paper into various card designs. I've been meaning to pay my butterflies the attention they deserve, so I chose one for the focal point of this card. The image was stamped in black and coloured by blending Distress Inks. Subsequently, the image was cut out and adhered to the graph paper with foam squares. Distress Inks were also used to soften the edges of the patterned papers.
