Visible Image - See Everything

This evening, I had an urge to play with my Visible Image stamps and stencils, creating this card, where I used stamps from three sets and a stencil too.

I started by using three shades of Distress Oxides Inks (Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Ripe Persimmon) through the Visible Image "Entwined Butterflies" stencil.

After removing the stencil, I stamped the large butterfly from the Visible Image "Wings of Change" on to the card, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink.  

While I had the stamp out, I stamped the same butterfly, three times on to white card using "Charming Pink" Versafine Clair Ink.  

I also created three masks of the butterfly by stamping onto post-it notes.  I fussy cut the post-it butterflies and adhered them over the butterflies stamped on to the card.

Next, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink I stamped the main image from the Visible Image "See Everything" clear stamp set.  I also stamped the central eye section onto a white piece of cardstock for later use.

I filled the areas to the side of the central image using a stamp from the Visible Image "Creative Chaos" stamp set, again stamped in "Nocuturne" black ink.

Returning the iris eye area stamped on a white card, I painted the eye itself with "Mermaid Lagoon" blue/green coloured Distress Oxide Ink, cut out a rough oval and adhered the eye over the one already stamped on the card.  I then covered the iris in Glossy Accents to give a glassy appearance.

I then glued the white butterflies into position.  I decided that some of the dots needed to be filled, I used a black marker pen and a white Posca Pen along with a green Sakura Gelly Roll Pen which matched the matting and layering.
