Play Date Cafe Challenge No 4

I just love the colours this week from the Play Date Cafe. The light is so bad here today though (very dark and rainy) that it's been really hard to take a decent photograph of my effort.
I have altered the negative of a chipboard letter A to make a little wall hanging.
I painted the background with Claudine Hellmuth paints, then stamped over the top using Adirondack inks. I followed this with Creme de Cacao, Robins Nest Blue and Spring Mint glimmer mists but it's really hard to see in the photo.
I stamped on the dark cardstock using Champagne Versamark ink.
Stamps used were by Crafty Individuals, Cavallini and Prima. I stamped the butterflies on paper that I'd coloured using Claudine Hellmuth paints and then punched them with my Martha Stewart butterfly punch. Finally I added some Tim Holtz metal, a flower, a part of a tag and some ribbon through eyelets set with a crop-a-dile.
The lace on the bottom is by Melissa Frances.
Hope you're having a good day and that you have a lighter, brighter day than we have here!
Thanks for looking x

Beautiful wall hanging :) So much work and detail has gone into it. Those blue butterflies are an excellent touch. It would have taken me all day to come up with something like this, how on earth do you do it???? Haha.
