Spring Is In The Air

Yes, Spring is in the air at Crafty Individuals and it's also the theme for February's ATC swap at The Naughty Step so I can enter this one for both challenges.


I used Crafty Individuals CI-176 for the main image, inking it with yellow, red, orange, olive green and black StazOn , then stamped onto Distress Ink in Broken China to give a pale sky.  The butterfly CI-061 was stamped once onto acetate using red and yellow StazOn and again onto white card and cut out.  I stamped CI-131 onto acetate using black ink, but cut out only one of the girl images and then coloured the dress and flowers with StazOn.  The acetate butterfly was lightly coloured with red StazOn then layered onto the card  image, lifting the wings to give dimension.  Both butterflies were then mounted onto the ATC using foam strips.
