New Life

Good Morning.  Love hanging out with you on a Sunday morning and having time to play.  Here is a card inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast.
The background for my card is created using a Gelli Plate.  For those of you that may have never heard of a Gelli Plate before, it is a gel-like plate that you add paint to then press paper onto it to create a print.  When you place a stencil or other recycled objects on the plate, it removes some of the paint so you are left with impressions and combined colours.  It can be very addictive and I haven't nearly had enough time to play with it.  The butterfly from Penny Black is called Soft Wings.  I coloured it with Memento markers, sprayed with water to help the colours blend then stamped and cut it out.  I chose colours to highlight the bkg. colours in the gelli print.  Isn't that a great sentiment?  It is also from Penny Black and is called ....the butterfly
