Created Byhand is "Looking in...Looking Out/Use Dies". The background of my card was cut using a Tim Holtz Alterations die Baroque and grungepaper. Instead of the actual die cut, I used the reverse as a frame. To color the frame I used my pan pastels. The result is a frame that looks and feels like suede. WOW! I also used a reverse die cut as a template for the blue geometric behind the butterfly image. The butterfly and hydrangeas are stamped using Kitchen Sink Stamps.
Color recipes: All inks used are Adirondack dye inks.

Flowers (stamped out of order) -- 3 purple twilight, 2 cool peri, 1 shell pink and then restamped with cool peri, 4 currant.
