I know it's conventional to have the panel on the left hand flap of a gatefold card, but I had a layout in mind and really wanted it to open the other way so that my butterfly wouldn't be flopping around in space when the card was open, so here you have it, an unconventional gatefold card
The butterfly image is a Linda Luckin one, which I stamped all over the base cars in Versamark ink and then brushed with a green metallic pigment powder. It doesn't really show very well on the main photo, so here is a close up.
For the panel, I stamped the fern (an old Graphicus stamp) several times using Crushed Olive DI, then inked the edges with the same ink and matted it onto olive green card. I lined the centre of the card with a panel like it but without the stamping. The butterfly image was stamped with Memento ink and coloured with Promarkers.
