CD 335 - Butterfly Gala

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge #335! 

This week, it's all about PINK! Take a look at the colour challenge below. 
I decided to pull out the stencil from the Wreath Builder stamp set and use that as a guide after searching through every stamp set I have for various sizes of butterflies. Then I had to do some intensive practice with my stamp platform to find the exact placement of the stamps where they would fit into an exact wreath just touching each other... that took about five tries for the outside wreath and another few tries for the inside. After I had stamped a few of the third row of butterflies around the outside of the wreath, I realized that the lower ones were going to be upside down - oops... so I turned the butterfly around and kept it in the same place. The larger ones at the bottom were just stamped manually. 

Some of the pinks in the photo look purple... it IS a pink marker. 
I brushed the butterfly bodies using the Black Shimmer Brush for emphasis.
