Inkspirational #189 - Garden

We have a new challenge at Inkspirational and this time it's a garden theme. There are plenty of options with this one, please head over to the challenge blog to see inspiration from my teamies and our guest designer - Milla.

I don't use butterflies often, but here they have taken center stage. I've used butterfly dies from Penny Black. I added a coat of white gesso and sprinkled on some white and gold frantage.  I used a Tim Holtz stencil for the blooms. The sentiment came free with a magazine. The colors are a lighter in real life, I was unable to capture the right shades with my camera...
This card is also for:
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - June Anything Goes
Craft Rocket Challenges - #60 Summer is Coming
Sisterhood of Crafters - Birds, Bees, Butterflies

This looks very artsy and beautiful! Love the dimension the large butterflies bring and the stenciled blooms in the background look very soft and delicate. Great contrast! xxx
