Oh, how I love the way this monarch butterfly turned out. When I saw the challenge over at Dynamic Duos, which was Calypso Coral and Black with a butterfly dessert option, it screamed out to use this monarch image from Best of Butterflies. I used the sketch from Just Add Ink 175.
The Calypso Coral DSP I used for the top background looks somewhat pink in the photo and looks so much better in real life.
For the tag, I cut out a Chalk Talk tag from some Festival of Prints DSP. I added some swirls and butterflies with Soft Suede ink and then sponged the whole thing. I traced the outside of the die onto black cardstock and hand cut it out for the back layer. I like the effect it gave.
