Funky Fossil - Butterfly Wishes (gelli plate background)

A few days ago, you may recall that I had a session making backgrounds using a gelli plate.  Today  have made one of the backgrounds into a finished item.

I used this background as the base for the finished card. I used the Funky Fossil "Forest Foliage", "Distressed Diamonds" and "Peony Panel" with Pan Pastels and acrylic paint to lift the image.

I started by stamping using Versafine Claire "Blue Belle" ink to stamp the whole butterfly and two sections of the butterfly on to the background.  I then stamped three butterflies on to plain white card.  Using the same ink, I stamped the "Butterfly Wishes" at the bottom right of the card.  The butterfly and the sentiment are both part of the Funky Fossil "Butterfly Wishes" stamp set.  

Using the butterflies on the white background, I used "Carved Pumpkin" Distress Oxide Ink to blend the colour over the stamped image.  I then used Posca Pens to colour and then fussy cut the image and adhered onto the background.  

I used a white and a dark blue Posca Pen to add splatters of colour across the piece.
