Butterfly Inspiration

Hello Crafty Friends,

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing some inspiration using the highly versatile sets from MHKDesigns. The set I am featuring today is the Beginnings & Endings set. You have seen me use this set before for my other inspiration post back in February. 

The background and butterflies were produced using photo editing software. By adjusting layers and playing with color it allowed for a dimensional one layer card. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I can understand why a group of butterflies are called a Kaleidoscope
while in contrast a group of caterpillars are called an Army.

I decided to keep the butterflies translucent and let some light filter through their wings
I added a bit of Wink of Stella to accentuate the lines on its wings.
I wanted to focus on the sky as a kaleidoscope of color
then by adding this beautiful sentiment it brought the entire together.

Details showing the Wink of Stella sparkle on the wings. 

There is a lot more to discover at MHKDesigns Etsy ShopThere always seems to something new to entice your creativity. I invite you to stop on over and see what we have to offer. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Your project is a real challenge. I think that could not be beat. This is the next card from the "secret garden" that draws the us into its interior ... and here everyone can fly high, because he has wings :-) Thank you for this beautiful card and a great inspiration.
