One for 3

Have you seen it's a technique challenge over at Artful Times and at Fashionable Stamping it's Flora and Fauna and at Ali Craft  it's butterflies so I have combined the three.
Despite how wonderful the weather has been I've not seen that many butterflies about, so thought I would make some of my own.
The technique is masking and just takes a little planning for me, first on scrap paper
then onto the card

 
I finished off by masking the whole design and adding a soft green ink to make it really pop against the white of the card

Von! Following you! Love it - great bit of inking and they really do pop! Well I think they must all be in my garden cos I have loads of bees and butterflies - although the Lavender and Pinks have been ace this year so I think that helps. Cx

Wonderful combination of flowers and butterflies and the color contrast is a great effect.
