Wild Flower

I have lots of pieces of watercolour paper around which have been used for various experiments with inks, powders, sprays and so on.  In an effort to use up some of them I've been seeing what I could combine to make some cards.  This card was made using a piece of one such sheet which had been coloured with Pixie Powders.  I found a piece of paper for a general background and then some scraps of toning paper and card to build up a few layers.  The wild flower and butterfly were cut from scraps of black card and the sentiment stamped onto a tiny scrap of the 'Pixie' paper before being cut out with a punch.
