Fusion - Musical Butterfly

After watching this video from Ms. LauraFadora, I really wanted to try her stamping technique with the halftone set that I had in my stash:  Altenew - SmileFusion - Musical butterfly gave me the perfect challenge - and I've chosen a true Fusion!


I'm not totally in love with the succession of colors, but wanted that blue lagoon to stand out - it is the color of my butterfly, after all!

Altenew inks:  peach perfect, warm sunshine, lagoon, deep Iris, cotton candy.

 ... though there are no musical notes, that little butterfly, and your visits make my heart sing!  Thanks @laurafadora for her inspiration!

You've been a busy girl :) I love how Laura inspired your design, and that you highlighted the Blue Lagoon on your color palette! Such a sweet layered butterfly, too, Michele! Looks like you nailed it, once again!
