Lilac and Blue Butterflies

Hey guys! I'm back, what a great vacation.  I was strolling along in some random outlet mall, and like a moth to a flame I was attracted to this nail polish kiosk.  The sales person and I talked for what seemed hours, and long story short, I came home with this stamping set.  I haven't done stamping in ages.  It was probably 4 years ago when I started getting into it and quickly got out of it, I was frustrated because I thought I couldn't do it.  Well, I gave it another try and I'm glad I did.  A couple of days ago I went to visit my friend Robyn, she gave me some really good stamping tips and I ended up borrowing four of her stamping plates.  These butterflies seemed easy to do in two colors, so I used the blue and lilac that came with the set I got on my vacation.  Then, I grabbed a tiny brush to paint over the tail and added some pink dots with the dotting tool.  This is far from perfect, but it's my second try in years, so I'm very happy with it.
