You know me, I LOVE my butterfly cards! :) Sally's is no exception. The warm yellow background is a great neutral backdrop for her pretty pair of butterflies. The pink of the butterflies just makes me happy as does the pretty punch, ribbon, and button embellishing her card. Here is my take. I was especially inspired by Sally's color scheme: I began by stamping the flower (Hero Arts CG194) with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Copic Express Paper. I colored the flower with a Copic Marker (Blush). Next, I added white shading and a darker pink to the flower petals using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft PITT Pastel Pencils. Just scribble on the color and blend with your fingertip. (LOVE this technique, my friends, it is SUPER fast and so dynamic!) The background was distressed using Wild Honey Distress Ink and the background stamp (Hero Arts Magical Background) was stamped in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. Sentiment by Hero Arts (CL351). Thanks sooooooo much for stopping by! See you tomorrow with another beautiful card by Sally!
