♥ Supplies Used ♥
Tube of choice is one from Irene Shpak called “She Knows”, which I purchased when MPT was open. Try to find a black & white close up tube to suit your needs.
Font of Choice: I used Things We Said by Imaginex. You can get it here.
Scrap Kits: (FTU) "My Favourite Things" by Maelia Designs. Her blog is here, but her link to the kit has changed to here.
Mask: Mask 0440 by Narah, which you can find here. I stumbled upon these when downloading a different set of masks. The download does not include an actual website but does allow for use in tutorials.
♥ Plugins used ♥
Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow
Lokas 3D Shadow

I opened element 13, cropped a few butterflies out of it and added them to my canvas. I re-size by 55%, and add a wide, light drop shadow. I mirrored my blue butterfly and then free rotated it by 30 degrees to the right and moved it into the lower left hand side of the frame. The other I left alone.
Open the bird, mirror, re-size by 15%, and add above all your layers.
