Butterfly Wishes

  Go big or go home! I bought Tim's very large Fanciful Flight die awhile ago and I finally got around to trying it out. 
  For the base, I used Alcohol Inks; pink, yellow, orange red. For the stained glass top, I used Grungepaper and then inked it with DI Black Soot. Then I took some sandpaper to it. The hardware I used for the body, is Bead Landing, which I purchased at Michaels. 
  All the pattern paper is K&Company Susan Winget Nature pad set. Used some DI Vintage Photo to ink up the edges. 
  The sentiment stamp is from Stamping Bella. Added some Tissue Tape and bling, and there you have it! Fanciful Flight! Fun!

  I had made some Easter cards, that I will be posting later on in the week. Glad I did them early! No time this week!
  Have a great week, and get inky!
