flutterby butterfly

I wanted to set myself a challenge of a limited palette and a theme and see where that lead me..............and here is the result.
My flutterby butterfly card.

I am entering this card for the following challenges:

The Stamp Boutique - challenge #11 cool colours
Flutter by Wednesday's - open challenge, to include butterfly,fairy or angel.

The card was made using the following items: (in case you want to have a go)!!!

cosmic shimmer drawing inks -blue blush,forest green,black night and purple haze
stamp sheets - creative expressions - Natures Wonders and Butterfly Kiss
Eco board tile
perfect medium
clear and black detail embossing powder
cut 'n' dry foam
creative expressions vintage cream ribbon
pinflair glue
crakle glaze

The background of the card was made by splattering the cosmic shimmer inks, leaving to dry and them edging with bluey green end of inkpad, applied using cut'n'dry foam.
The next layer uses one of my favourite techniques at the moment, using clear embossing as resist.
The next layer was created by stamping and edging with BIG and Juicy pad.
The top square was stamped with perfect meduim and embossed using black detail embossing powder and the image coloured using the fantastic cosmic shimmer acrylic drawing inks, they have to be seen to be believed!
The tile was stamped in black, coloured using inks, crackle accents applied and left to dry.
The butterfly was coloured and embossed as panel.
The vintage cream ribbon was coloured using distress inks, but could easily have been coloured using distress inks.

Let me know what you think.
