Big, Bold Butterfly

Got this idea from another online stamper. Was pleased to be able to use this ornate butterfly image; it can be a challenge to use because of its size. I stamped it on white cardstock and coloured it with Wild Honey Distress Ink, applying more on the edges and less as I worked my way toward the centre. Detail colouring was done with Distress Markers. Always enjoy incorporating a number of stamps into the design of a card. Adhered the butterfly directly to the gold, patterned paper through the layered frame. Should have "popped" the frame layers for more dimension...
