"Safe as Houses"
The background is from the 2nd, 3rd and 4th stampings of archival ink. After stamping, it was coloured with distress inks, and clouds added by splodging with Picket Fence distress stain. The houses are coloured with inks and overstamped with the butterfly before adhering to the background with a little glossy accents at each edge, bending the centre of the diecut out to create a little dimension.
All that was left to do was a little matting and layering onto deep red and pale blue card. And yes, that is sunshine and shadows in the photo - we have Sun in Northern Ireland, woohoo!
