This months  2 crafty critter crazies challenge Sponsor is

This card is made using Mushroom with butterfly
I decided to print it as a 7 x 7 image and
loved colouring it with my kuretake pens.
Pens used :-blue gray, dark gray, dark brown, light gray, oatmeal and dark oatmeal for the fungi.
Then lemon yellow, light carmine and dark pink for the butterfly.
The blue background is shaded lilac distress ink.

The image was trimmed to leave a very thin border on a 7 x 7 card base and adhered to the card.
I then made a second smaller image approx. 4" square and coloured this.
I gave the image an inked border and added it to
a sheet of 7 x 7 vellum with foam pads.

I glued the back of vellum where the foam pads were (so that my adhesive couldn't be seen) and added this on top of the larger image.

I used bakers twine to wrap around the card /vellum to hold the top of the vellum.
Then stamped a sentiment on white, edged it in shaded lilac and used wet glue to hold it in place.

Just couldn't resist adding some wink of stella to the butterfly.
