Critters and wings in pastels

This Inkadinkado stamp is a nice one, but it is one I am not sure what to do with.  There are so many elements to color - I ended up leaving some with no coloring and then had a chance to use lots of colors - mostly pastels and a few brighter ones.  I used some metallic gel pens for finer details, and watercolor pencils with an aqua pen for some of the larger items.  Your ideas are most welcome.
I used a couple of pieces of DP from my scrap stash.  The gold embossed "corner" is also a scrap that was just the right shape and size.  The card is finished with a strip of Washi tape and punched butterfly.

I love images like this, because of all the coloring. I like your approach of the watercoloring of this image, it gives it a vintage feel. Thanks for joining us at Love to Scrap! Challenge Blog
