Simply pink butterflies

Inspiration from a card on 'Outside the box'. 
I used Moon-glow mica inks in different pink mixes( most have 2 tones so show other colours too when the light catches them ) and splodge painted a strip of white card. I added a trio of spiral paperclips to the wet surface and some rock salt and left to dry.
I removed the salt and paperclips and cut 2 strips with wavy sides before applying to a white base card.


I used a memory Box die Vivienne butterfly and cut out 3 in white card which I stuck at angles to the gap I left between the wavy lines.


I don't normally do pink but in small amounts like this with the shine it has and sparkle from the pigments inks I can cope with pink and might do similar cards with different coloured inks.

It's hard to tell from the pictures but the butterflies are only attached by their bodies so the wings stand proud and floaty off the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Dream Valley challenges-sparkle ,bling and embellish



star in my pocket-monochrome
