Cute Card Thursday - Butterfly Tilda

Hi there!
Well, when I saw today's Cute Card Thursday challenge 'Mirror, Mirror' (to use something shiny on your card), I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I hadn't had a chance to ink up this new Tilda yet but I knew it would be perfect for this challenge as I wanted to use the very fun and shiny Fantasy Film for her butterfly wings!  It's essentially a very simple card as I used a Magnolia background stamp which I airbrushed the sky and grass in.  I stamped on the additional little bees, coloured them in and added some shimmer to their wings.  I coloured Tilda in with my Tombow markers and Distress Inks on watercolour paper and trimmed her out.  The only part that added the extra time was stamping and cutting out her wings on the fantasy film. I used two layers of wings to make sure of some dimension.  The close-up photo gives you a better idea of the film - I briefly waved my heat gun over the film to make it curl and crinkle a little.  I stamped the sentiment (The Stamp Barn) and drew my own banner which I cut out and added to the front of the card.
And there you have it - I think I will also add this to last week's challenge for Just Magnolia which if I recall correctly was 'Pink & Green' - yay, 2 challenges done on one card - gotta love that!!
Hope you are all having a fabulous evening and thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment!  Much appreciated as always!
Hugs,
Danielle x
