AAA Challenge 75

I kept thinking about the challenge graphic at AAA Cards challenge. It was pretty and it was out of my comfort zone somehow. I've never done rainbow colours before.

It turned out to be more difficult that I thought, with a number of false starts finding their way to the bin. I used the dotty background stamp from Timeless Textures and after spending quite a lot of time getting it perfectly lined up, decided that it looked too clinical and then put a couple of random stamps over the top of it. I wanted it to look light and airy, to pick up the polka dots from the inspiration photo but at the same time act like foliage in a tree with dappled light.

I resisted the temptation to add any Wink of Stella, Perfect Pearls or other highlights to the butterflies although I did attach them with glue dots in the centre so that their wings lift ever so slightly off the page.
