Starting this atc, I had no idea what I was going to end up with, I resized and coloured the image first, then spent about half an hour humming and ahhing with different backgrounds/embellishments and nothing would work. Then I found this gorgeous tissue/mulberry paper (I have no idea what it is).

'Bat-erfly' from Delicious Doodles
orange, black, canary yellow promarkers
not much to this atc, as I found it more effective with no embellishments, love the depth to the wings.

As its cold and rainy today, I thought I'd do a nice cheery card - lovely pastel yellow, reminiscent of a sunny day. When I planned this card, the panel was vertical but I couldn't make it look right so I turned it horizontal.
