Butterfly Challenge #107 Spin the Wheel with the letter A


This is the wheel for the current Butterfly Challenge:



I decided to try and use all 7 elements...


I started with a white card base the size of a postcard (4 by 6) and layered it with dark red then blue card.
The next layer was a piece of marbled background on which I stamped Elizabeth Bennett and Darcy. These were layered over the script stamp by masking the figures.
The stamps were from a  set a got a couple of years ago from Lost Coast Design.


I then added the scroll - this was a die that I won in the Butterfly Challenge early this year - at that time I used it in this card:



I cut the scroll from some alcohol ink background - and some butterflies. The plan was to use some azure blue, apricot and amethyst in this but the amethyst didn't really show up.


Next I added some amethyst gems, apricot buttons and some cream ribbon bows.

This completes all sections of the wheel - I will link this to Butterfly Challenge #107.
