Here I am with number two part of the August Challenge 

This time using a piece of the fantastic white cardstock from the Journal Kit , for the background, 
onto another scrap paper cardstock, I stamped one of Lynne`s lovely wildflowers, in Archival ink,
and after sprayed with the Flat Matte Aqua , diluted with water.

Onto another scrap this time from a greyboard tag I cut in two,
not long ago, I painted White, 
and when dry stamped Donna`s cute dog - he was painted with different
brown watercolour pencils , and a "tree trunk" painted on his left side , with
a few white doodles -

Melina`s beautiful butterfly was stamped ,twice, onto
ricepaper, ,also from the Journal kit, sprayed with Aqua Flat Matte, they were fussy cut and adhered together
with the Gloss gel Medium , making it a bit stiffer , and bendable .

The butterfly was painted details , using a white Posca pen,
and around the perimeter of the wild flower scrap I smeared
some of the Chestnut Brown . 
A piece of Corrugated Cardboard from the kit ,and a gauze piece ,were both also sprayed with 
Bluebell  Flat Matte- and after dry layered onto the cardstock, -the gauze under the wildflower piece , and on top the dog, now , with a little lace piece  with added flower. 
Butterfly was adhered to right upper corner.
Lastly Lynne`s Affirmation was stamped to paper also treated with Aqua , cut into 3, and adhered .

Hugs and love

The Butterfly really is a work of art Dorthe, I adore how you have added the extra details the white pen really does give grace and beauty.
That sweet flower on the dogs collar is the sweetest of flowers.

The little dog is adorable, especially leaning against the dotty tree. What a lovely torn fragment with Lynne's flower too.
