Pretty in Pink

"Pretty In Pink"

I first saw this stamp used by Avril in one of our challenges at FSC
 and loved it so much that I just had to get it.
It is a Lost Coast Design stamp.

It pretty much filled up the whole card (well, the size that I make anyway)
so there was no room to move...
I had some scrap cs that I had inked previously when I was first experimenting with dylusional inks
so I used this for the butterflies.
Then it was obvious to me that I needed hot pink cs to bring out the colour of the butterflies.

The small butterflies are stamped a second time, cut out and stuck on so that they lift up.
I have added some glitter on their wings.

I think the more I look at this the more I really like the hot pink.
