Freestyle Tri Colour Competition sponsored by Craft Barn

The Craft Barn is sponsoring a competition on UK Stampers using the colour swatch below. The piece of art was to use the three colours below and it must contain stamping.
I decided to make ATCS. I began by applying splodges of water colours to a paper towel and then dried it with a heat gun and stuck the paper onto my card.
I then stamped the cherry blossom stamp, butterfly and dragonfly (Woodware) 
I also stamped the butterfly onto an old dictionary page, coloured with Sakura gel pens and then added Crackle glaze.

I coloured the blossom white and then printed out and inked Flutter By One day.
The bird and smaller butterflies were stamped onto Shrink Plastic coloured with Pro Markers and shrunk - I made some extra ones for future projects. I had lots of problems with the Ranger Archival Ink Smudging.
