April Showers Bring May Flowers - Butterflies

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I've love participating in this challenge but I have to be honest...procrastinated on these butterflies. So many beautiful butterfly wings already completed by others, that I wanted to try something different. And I'm sorry to say, I'm not thrilled with it. This was only my second time stamping, and yeah, I need some more practice. Also, it took me forever to figure out the colors I wanted to use. I love those blue butterflies...so this was my inspiration.
 Sparitual Howl, Delight and Ripple Effect, Elixir Lacquer Foxy
I used a base coat and 2 not so nice coats of Sparitual Delight. I'm quite surprised because I'm a big fan of Sparitual, but this one did not flow easily. As you can see the 2nd coat`did not self level well. Had I not been going to go over this with another color..I would have taken it off and tried again. Perhaps it was user error...I was being impatient.
 I topped off the Sparitual Delight with 2 coats of Elixir Lacquer Foxy. I really wanted to get that butterfly green/blue from my inspiration pic! These took forever to dry and I even got sleep lines in it overnight :/
 And then of course, I tried my hand with stamping butterflies with Sparitual Howl and flowers with Sparitual Ripple Effect.
Hope you like it better than I do. LOL! And check out the others in this challenge:
