A Bugs Life at Crafty Cardmakers and More

Hello Everyone
We have a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and More and I am your hostess this time round.
Our theme this time is 'It's A Bug's Life' so I would like to see Butterflies, Dragonflies, Ladybirds, or any other INSECT as the main image or focal point of your project.
We are sponsored this time by HOBBY ART STAMPS and DI'S DIGISTAMPS.
I have been lucky enough to be able to play with the Butterfly stamp set that has been provided by Hobby Art as one of our prizes.
The background paper has been handmade using Distress Inks, the Creative Palette and some Stampendous background stamps.
I stamped and embossed the butterflies on to this once it had dried and then painted them with more ink and a Gelly Roll Stardust pen.
I added some faux stitching, peel-off dots and Card Candi which I covered with Glossy Accents to give them more dimension.
The red background card has also been stamped with the Stampendous stamps and Versamark ink.
The sentiments are all part of the fabulous Butterfies set.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges
Crafty Calendar challenges - Things with Wings
Addicted to Stamps - Things with Wings
Fashionable Stamping Challenges - Flying Things
Please don't forget to share some love with the rest of the DT, and I shall look forward to seeing all of your wonderful creations.
Hugs Kimx
