Sunday Stamper 154 - Camouflage

Hels' Sunday Stamper challenge is Camouflage - or greens, khaki's.  I started this earlier this morning and have been doing it in dribs and drabs all day.

I started with a canvas (5x7ish) which I painted with a mixture of birch and zucchini eco green paints, mixed on my craft mat.  Whilst that dried, I stamped a load of flowers (a small and a large 5 petal flower stamp from Hobby Art - one of my earliest purchases) on a sheet of paper from Tim's Retro Grunge stack, in a kind of sludgy green colour.
This is with the flash so the butterflies show up more but it isn't a true representation of the green (see below)

I used two fragments coloured with various green alcohol inks for the flower centres, and backed the sentiment with the same paper I used for the flowers.
 Layered them up to make two flowers, fixed them together using the tiny attacher under the fragments.
Used some Roxx (Judikins - bottle unopened!) - black beady things for the butterfly bodies.
And a word stick coloured with meadow alcohol ink.
The butterflies are Tim's die, coloured wild honey grungepaper and overstamped with background stamps. Sprayed with heirloom Gold perfect pearl for some sparkle.
