Butterfly by Sugar Creek Hollow

A happy good morning! Just a very short post for today to introduce you to a new image made by SCH. This butterfly image is just  beautiful and I wanted to use it to enter into the Flutter By Wednesday challenge today which is white on white. I printed the butterfly on some metallic paper and then clear embossed it. While heating it with the heat gun it changed the look of the metallic paper. I can't even explain how the heat did this but if you have embossed metallic papers you know what I am talking about. I then used a couple of glitter pens to color in a few of the areas on the butterfly. I was astounded at how this turned out! Please tell me what you think!

Here is a close up of the butterfly

Donna, this is gorgeous! It reminds me of abalone. That pretty pearlescent look it has with the purples and blues. Fabulous job! I'm not sure there's any point in my entering the challenge now! LOL!! Great job!
