May the wings of the butterfly

Hello!  Today I'm bringing you some more spring because there is plenty of winter outside.  And truly, I use any excuse to use butterflies.  This time I stamped up this sentiment from the Butterfly Circles, May the Wings with a Kaleidoscope ink pad.  It's an old pad someone gave me a while back but it's still in great inky condition and I love it that the different pads slide together for inking and away for storage.  After stamping, I die-cut out my quote using Spellbinders Labels Two and sponged the edges while still in the frame with a bit of green ink.

Taking my cue from the different colors in the sentiment, I added Poppystamps Cheviot and Delaney butterflies and a floral spray with Wild Orchid Flowers and the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish.  The solid bottom layer of the butterfly was sponged with Distress Stains Tumbled Glass and Seedless Preserves.  I also used the Tumbled Glass to sponge the edges of my base layer.
