Golden pansies

Good evening, I'm a bit later than I intended with this post as my computer just decided to upload Windows asked me what time I wanted to schedule the upgrade....completely ignored the time I chose and went ahead anyway! Hope this doesn't bode ill for the future!
Anyway, back to the card....I spent a lovely day last week doing very little but reading and colouring and I made this card with one of my coloured images. She is, of course, an Aurora Wings beauty, one of the first I bought and I've coloured her several times before, I intended to try with my distress inks but printed on the wrong paper (duh!) so I used my copics instead! I kept the design pretty simple as there is so much detail in the image. The butterfly die is Tim Holtz and I cut the solid layer from a piece of watercolour paper upon which I had made my first (not altogether successful!!) attempt at using brushos (think I added too much water!) at least the colours were perfect for what I wanted and I just used a white gel pen to add the dots to the wings

Thanks for visiting!
