Visible Image "Antisocial Butterfly" card

On the Country View Crafts facebook page the theme for their January 2024 challenge is "Be Wordy", so I decided to make a card for the challenge. As I hadn't used my Visible Image stamps and stencils for a while, I decided to use them.

I used Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" ink to stamp the main central image, using the Visible Image "Antisocial Butterfly" stamp set.  I coloured the butterfly using two shades of Derwent Inktense pencils, using "Cadmium Yellow" and "Persian Red" shades.

I overstamped the butterfly using the "crazed butterfly" which is part of the Visible Image "Antisocial Butterfly" stamp set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Blue Belle" ink.

I used "Chrome Yellow" Ranger Archival Ink through two areas of the Visilbe Image S"trobes Stencil".

Next, I used "Monarch Orange" Ranger Archival Ink through the Visible Image "Breakout Stencil".

Through the Visible Image "Supernova Stencil", I used "Pebble Beach" Ranger Archival Ink.

I then used the nesting circles in the Visible Image "Off The Grid Stenicl" with Ranger "Shadow Grey" ink.

For the small dots in the top left and bottom right corner, I used the Visible Image "Two Tone" stencil with "Monarch Orange" Ranger Archival Ink.

In the bottom left and top right edges, I stamped the Visible Image "Grunge Flourish" using Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" ink.  I used the same ink to stamp the two words "Antisocial Butterfly" which are also part of the Visible Image "Antisocial Butterfly" stamp set.

Next, I used Versafine Clair "Morning MIst" grey ink to stamp the "Transform" and "Metamorphis" which are both part of the Visible Image "Wings of Change" stamp set.

Finally, I inked the edges of the card using Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" ink.  I used a blue Posca Pen to colour in some of the stamped circles, then mounted the card on to dark blue card and then on to a white card blank.
