The secret is patience

This is the card I was trying to post  earlier this afternoon for the Stampman Challenge-26.
As the light and the shine from the acetate caused  a number of odd looking photos,  and blogger wouldn't let me load the photo, I nearly gave up altogether. So here I am a little calmer   deciding  to give it another go,  everything appears to be  working,  although parts of the card still look  a bit shaded.
The theme for the challenge was to use Alcohol inks with an optional sketch.
I used  Wild Plum ink to splatter onto my acetate, with a few drops of gold mixative. The tree and sentiment are  Elusive Images stamps [now Chocolate Baroque] from the Essence of Nature set. I also stamped the butterflies on the same  acetate, then added a bit of bling.
Thankyou for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments
