UTEE... Alcohol Inks & a few embellishments

I've used a 4" butterfly which I've embossed with Deep Gold Jewel Enamels stamped into it while it was still hot with the Swirled Border stamp from Stamp & Stor Art Stamps, I've added Purple Twilight & Clover Alcohol Inks over the top ...... embossed the wooden flourish with more Jewel Enamels and just swiped a Gold Dabber over the wooden sentiment ...... added some flowers, a tassle, a chain and a stickpin .... hope you all like it :o))

am entering this into Creative-Expressions 'Texture' Challenge

Just thought I would showcase some more of the products ..... all with a Flora & Fauna theme ....
