things with wings

Hello my friends. I won't be very active over the next couple of weeks as being on hols I am not crafting. However I managed to find a card that I hadn't blogged that fit a challenge. 

This was a commissioned card  and the stamps and layout etc were pre- determined to match a previous card I'd made but in different colours. The stamps are all from Stampendous.
I triple embossed the tag in clear UTEE and stamped the spring bouquet in Black archival while it was still warm and molten. I also added some glitter and mica pieces from the stampendous jewel kits.

I stamped the butterfly twice on black card and clear embossed them. I painted them in with acrylic paints, using the same ones in the background. I fussy cut them and then cut out the front wing only off the second one to add more dimension.

I stamped the black base card with a couple of flourishes using white and gold acrylic paint.
Then I added ribbon and twine to tag and fixed the butterfly with the wings proud to give the illusion of flying.
I attached it to base card and added the sentiment that was a die cut from Kanban - an old QVC kit in the time of Dawn Bibby.
Hugs, Theresa xx.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
