Butterflies?

Hello and welcome, I hope you had a good weekend? I was a bit busy this weekend and had only a little time to indulge in my obsession :0)  Over at Less is More the theme is ............in the words of  Chrissie Lady LIM and  Mandi Diva LIM .......
Butterfly/Butterflies
How easy peasy is that! We are so good you you! [But what are they building up to we hear you cry!
So as usual, as long as your design is CLEAN & SIMPLE, the worlds your oyster...or butterfly!
You can do one or a whole flutter, it's entirely up to you.
Not a favourite subject of mine but I love a challenge!
Stamps Personal Impressions, Count my Blessings, by Lindsay Mason. 
Hero arts, Live Life! Sandra at Stamping For Pleasure  used them on a card and I just thought they were delicious and I really needed them, of course. Great inspiration from Sandra and many Thanks from me :0)
Stamp for text and flourish Bella boulevard, sorry can't remember name.

Stamping in layers, three times I stamped the butterfly, with Adirondack Autumn Sunset then black ink and Versamark onto which I used mica powder and then painted the wings with Lyra aquacolour paints. Glitter is black diamond stickles. The background is painted and sprayed with Moonglow mica.







So..... off I go it's late and I need my beauty sleep, been trying it for years but hasn't worked yet, maybe tomorrow:0) TTFN

Edited to add, 
Sheila in Cyprus, I'm so sorry I cannot get to you to Thank You on your blog so I would like to say Thank You so much for your lovely comments, you're a sweetie :0) xxx
