Fancy Flourishes from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies, todays card features the gorgeous new clear stamps from Chocolate Baroque, Fancy Flourishes  and a little topper made from Tim Holz tissue wrap. I adore this stamp set, such beautiful intricate designs.

I made the background by blending Dusty Concorde and  Milled Lavender distress inks onto some white cardstock. I stamped the flourish using Imperial Purple Versafine ink, its so easy to position these clear stamps. I made the topped by wrapping a little piece of card with tissue wrap, and adding some colour with more distress inks. I coloured the butterflies with Graph'It Markers and added some tiny dots of stickles to the wings before edging the topper with a gold krylon pen. I've just added a little bow and a die cut butterfly to finish off. I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Bloggers: things with wings

Glitter 'n'sparkle: add some black

  8. Amazing the depth you created in your topper & I love the colours you used for the whole composition. The topper butterflies look as if they're about to fly off the card. Your background stamping echoes the die-cut filigree butterfly beautifully.
