Butterfly Challenge with the Letter E

The Butterfly Challenge has a different twist these days - to use a special fold is an option.
With E it is an Easel and Mrs A has added some ideas here. I went for Version 1.

I started with a strip of an emerald green 12 by 12 and scored it at 3 and 6 inches.
This was about 4.5 inches wide.

I used a paper from Molly's Ballerina paper pad (including Egyptian blue on it) to mat the base and easel.

The next layer was made using an embossing folder and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink - see my previous post for the video showing more details.

I distressed the edges of this, and the sentiment, with Victorian Velvet too.

The butterflies and sentiment come from Bugaboo's Beauty Butterfly I added colour to the butterflies with Copics, including 'Eminence'.

 I will link this to Butterfly Challenge #121.

I will also link it to the Path Of Positivity Challenge - happiness

and the Outlawz Festive Friday Challenge - Anything Goes.

Happy Crafting!

P.S. Mrs A chose this card as one of her top three!!
