A butterfly flies beside us .....

Good Saturday morning all!
Well, I am feeling worlds better and back to my normal self.  Thank you so much to everyone who left such sweet wishes - your messages really touched me!
I was asked to make another one of these butterfly wall hangings for a friend.  I used a blank artist canvas and covered it with scrapbook paper.  I was told purple was a favourite colour so I went with that.  I coloured the butterfly with my Tombow markers and airbrushed the background. (Apologies for the wonky photo!!).

Here's a close-up of the butterfly.  I used a gemstone swirl for the butterfly trail which I really love!  The random butterflies are from my MS punch - the plain pink ones I ran through the swiss dots cb embossing folder to add some detail.  Paper flowers, MS branch punch and ribbon finish off the piece.  Here's a close-up of the verse - I just love these words.

Thanks for stopping by today and visiting me!  Your comments are always so much appreciated. I'm off to blog-hop for a bit and catch up on some commenting and see what wonderful things all you crafting friends have been up to!  Hope you all enjoy a fabulous day!
