Flutterby time

I love this quirky stamp it makes me think of some time travelling sci-fi the name of which totally eludes me , but its somehow hypnotic. 
I am quite addicted to the masking and water-colouring technique as those who have been following my blog recently have no doubt surmised and these 2 cards are more of the same. That apart I love how different colouring can really change the look and feel of the image even though the focal image is really similar in colouring.

Both cards were created using the same technique, the central image stamped in stazon and then masked with pebeo masking fluid. The background was then created using distress oxide inks and faux bleaching using water and kitchen paper. the images were then cleared of masking fluid and painted with aquablend pens.

The cards were then matt and layered using purple mirri-card on white base cards and to say the only major colouring difference is the background I love how different the 2 cards look.

I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:-
