Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Butterfly 2

Well I'm pleased to say that my photos seem to be getting clearer. Just by reading and playing I managed to get an image I was happier with. Things can only get better from here! This is the second time I've used this image but put it with a different background. The background was made using chalks and over the top I used Crafters companion spray and sparkle. It is a very simple card but I'm pleased with how it turned out. As in the previous butterfly card the image was coloured with promarkers, glittered and then decoupaged.
