2 sketches 4 You - Kazan's sketch 59

Here's my card for 2 Sketches 4 You this week - Kazan's sketch 59. I turned the sketch through 90° to make this.

When I was playing with my alcohol inks and distress inks the other day to make this card I made a couple of other bits in a different colour scheme and these are what I used for today's card.

As before the background panel is made using the clear embossing over a stamped image and then alcohol inks over the top before ironing to remove the embossing powder.
The butterfly image was made in a similar way by embossing with clear embossing powder but then using distress inks to colour before ironing away the embossing.

Materials used: Coredinations cardstock, Chapel Road Artstamp (background), Ranger alcohol inks, Paperbag Studios stamp (butterfly), Ranger distress inks, Versamark ink, CraftWork rhinestone flourishes, Wild Orchid Crafts paper roses.
Also used: satin ribbon, various pins and a vintage button.
