Really *Fanatical* ...

about Botanical! :0)

I'm still living over at the Moxie Fab World here and wanted to pop another interpretation of this theme in for the Moxie Fab World Challenge ...

Butterfly Botanical

This is a bit of a turn around from the last one - where the butterfly was in the background (literally), and uses the idea of a blue French Toile for the dogwood blossoms ... this time it's the butterfly that's 'real'!

Butterfly Botanical Deet

After colouring the butterfly, I gave it a wash of Oyster Twinkling H2O's - to add some 'mothy shimmer' to its wings. You can't see it all the time, only when it catches the light.

All in all it has a light airy feeling, and between the rhinestones, satin ribbon and moth shine - it has a lovely twinkly shimmer in reality!

All righty - I'm heading out for a few days here - thanks for popping in!

Hope you head off into a *totally* fabulous day!

Hugs,
