~ are some of the feelings I wanted to get across with this card. 
It’s like it’s full of nature’s little secrets….playful.
I was having a play with this card by using the resist technique….the white ferns are stamped in versamark and clear embossed.
Then I have coloured the rest of the card with distress inks (some of my favourite colours).  I ironed off the embossing and then overstamped some ferns using the same inks as the background.
The butterflies are just stamped and embossed on patterned paper with some copic touch ups to add more depth to the colours.
The centrepiece is also then covered with UTEE and frozen and cracked.
The stamp is from Tim H collections.
