New Tracey Coates Stamp

I've had my eye on this stamp plate for a couple of weeks after seeing some examples of it on The Stampman blog and I bought it at Port Sunny over the weekend. Its by Tracey Coats and is called Butterfly Beauties.
I'm entering this into the following challenges.

Stampin' for the weekend - Orange, Brown & Green

Stamp Something - Brown

Secret Crafter - Autumn

C.R.A.F.T - Autumn

The Pink Elephant - Fall

Flutterby Wednesday - Fairy or butterflies

Image was stamped and embossed using kaleidoscope embossing powder which changes colour from blues and greens through to reds and oranges the more you heat it giving a rainbow effect.
I then watercoloured the image with starburst stains in California poppy gold, Cocoa bean copper and Poinciana Flame red The skin was coloured in promarkers using Ivory, blush, vanilla and oatmeal.
The backing card and cuttlebug panels were made with a mix of cocoa bean copper and Cathedral pines green
The dressline is another stamp you get in Tracey's set which is fab!
Thanks for looking x
