Craft Barn Q&L 14 - Imagination and/or Logic

As soon as I saw the challenge posted this morning I knew I'd use one of my Tim Holtz stamps for imagination - so whilst it's possibly not a bone fide quote, I hope it'll be allowed.

 I used two of Tim's other stamps too, stamped in Potting Soil archival at the bottom and Fern Green at the top.  I wanted to knock them back into the page though, and so used a watered down wash of Honey Dew fresco paint
 The 'imagination' stamp onto heavyweight Smoothy card from Paperartsy, edged with Tumbled Glass distress ink.
I die cut the Memory Box butterflies from the same card  and before I eased them out of the card (they remain attached when you die cut them) I brayered them with Beach Hut Fresco.
Glued the butterflies around the quote round the page, kept it really simple this time!

ALL Tim Holtz's stamps are taken from quotes he has collected, so it will be allowed.

A lovely summery feel to your page. Evokes sitting in a deck chair on a warm summer's day and letting your mind just drift.
