Inque Boutique Butterfly and Koh-I-Noor Pencils

I've been discussing Nestabilities with a novice stamper friend of mine so they've been fresh on my mind. I haven't used them a lot, and when I received my new Inque Boutique stamps today, I thought the butterflies needed to be framed with a "Nestie." I also had some brand-new Koh-I-Noor woodless pencils I was dying to play with, so I decided to use them on my butterfly - or is it a moth? Colors were blended with Gamsol and a blending stump. I was looking through my papers and found this in the Basic Grey Phoebe collection. It's hard ot tell in the scan, but I mounted the matted butterfly on small pop-dots. Very simple card and I think it's awfully pretty, if I do say so myself. I hope you enjoy!

Wow, I can see why you like this one! The colors look so vibrant and I bet they are even more so in real life!! Glad you had fun playing with the Koh-i-nors! I have only used mine a few times-- so thanks for the inspiration to get them out! :-)
