Three Bs inspiration

Hello to you all,I am back with my second sample for Country View Crafts and the theme is
 Bugs,Bee's and Butterflies
all or any
 This is actually a happy mistake, I had bird on my mind as one of the Bs when I started but didn't want to change it so added the butterflies !!!!

I started by scribbling some Gelatos over my white card

I used a baby wipe to gently blend my colours,making sure not to over blend,then go in with the heat gun to make sure it is dry.

I then inked through a leaf stencil with Burlap Distress ink

I then stamped my bird with Black Archival ink,If you get a baby wipe you can wipe away some of the Gelato from inside the image lines.

Then coloured in with distress inks 

I painted in a branch to give the bird some grounding

I then stamped some butterflies and the sentiment

Finally finished off by inking around the edge with Black Soot Distress ink and mounting it onto black card

I am entering this into
