Stampotique - SDC13- Wings Wings Wings

The second Stampotique challenge of the month is a "free stamp" one and the new theme is Wings Wings Wings.

I have used some new - i.e never used, not new as in just bought - products - my Twinkling H2O's (I've had them 2 years and never even taken the lids off.... and two Stampscapes butterflies - had them at least one year).

I have had trouble photographing this card because of the use of the pink brilliance inkpad!

Stamped and cut out each butterfly and painted them with the Twinkling H2O's - having opened them, I will be using them lots, how fab are the colours - don't ask me why I have left it so long to try them...  Bent the wings and attached with 3d foam dots.

The base card is approx 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 and I used Paperartsy stamps on it. I tried to take some pics in close up to show it better but had to turn the flash off to avoid flare, so it's distorted the colours a little.
