Wings in Pink

I did not intend to make an easel card this time but then Pile It On set that as the challenge. I used Claudia's sketch from Cute Stamps & Cards. Photographing the card was difficult because of the shimmery nature of the focal image.

Recipe
Focal Image Stamped (Inkadinkado 99120 Patterned Birds & Bugs), heat embossed  (Stampendous Star Dust) & watercoloured using Sakura Stardust pens. Oval (cut using Xcut Shape Cutter) edged with Stickles Glitter Glue.
Background Panels Cardstock inked & stamped (Stampers Anonymous Fancy Flourish) using Distress Inks.  A combination of crumpling & dampening aged the appearance & the panels were ironed flat. Edges inked (Distress Inks).
Propping Panel Butterflies - punched (Woodware), shaped, edges inked (Distress Inks), dampened to disperse the inks, re-shaped & covered in Glossy Accents. Flower - assorted sequins & beads from "stash". Scalloped circles punched (Woodware) & outer scallops inked (Brilliance Starlite Black).
Message Panel Punched (Woodware) & scallops inked (Brilliance Starlite Black).
Cardstock, ribbon & pearls from "stash".
