Butterflies at croaky towers

Over on try it on tuesday the theme is butterflies and as its the 2nd week in June its also Tag week. I am very late with this - I have a sick note though, I am loaded with cold and have a hacking cough - not great for the concentration it has to be said or for getting a good nights kip!
Anyhow better late than never. I have used adirondack inks and shaving brushes to create the soft background then over stamped in the same ink. The butterflies are paper pieced - I do love that little technique. A little fibre, butterfly charm and matting and layering and its done. the stamp set is pocket silhouettes by stampin up - if you only ever invest in one SU stamp set make it this one its soooo versatile i have used it lots. The sentiment is also from the set.
Hope you are all fit and well and enjoying a little sunshine whilst its here. A busy few days ahead so I hope the cold beats a hasty retreat for me. have a great day x
