I started by creating a rainbow panel using my distress oxide inks and a blending tool. Next, I spritzed water on through a stencil (not really visible though) and blotted up the water using a paper towel. I then die cut my panel using my NBUS Bitty Butterfly coverplate die by PTI. I also die cut a second panel from white Neenah cardstock. I trimmed of the lower part of my A2 panel to create a square card and adhered it to my card base. I adhered some of my rainbow butterflies flat into the die cut apertures (inlaid), while popping up the wings of three of my butterflies using clear foam tape. For the white butteflies I added a second butterfly on top of the inlaid one for a little added interest. The sentiment (English country garden - butteflies by Uniko) was stamped in black onto a strip of vellum.
