Butterfly? Moth?

Today's technique on SplitCoast was using paper tole on your card....but it couldn't be a floral image.
I decided to use the butterfly from "Touch of Nature". I stamped the butterfly with VersaMark onto the Bordering Blue background. Then I coloured the butterfly three times using Always Artichoke, Barely Banana, and Mellow Moss Markers. The three look pretty much alike.
I left the first image on the vanilla paper without cutting it out. The other two were cut out carefully with snips and then layered onto of the first using dimensionals.
I've given a side view so you can see the dimension and then also added a photo of the butterfly by itself.
I was going to add a sentiment, but decided not to. That way I could use it for anything in the future.

This was fun...Oh, I also sort of used Beate's weekend sketch challenge....shown here also. You can see other cards using this sketch here.

Happy Stampin' - Joan
