Hello Little Butterfly!

Hi Everybody!!! I hope you all had a great weekend! I'm finally feeling more like myself again. It sure was a tough couple of weeks. My son was home for a week and a half and I was sick through the whole thing :-( Fortunately, hubby stepped up and helped out a lot. I think he was feeling really sorry for me.

My new stamps from Magnolia's 'Butterfly Dreams' collection have been sitting on my craft desk just taunting me. Hubby took our son to a movie yesterday and I was definitely in the mood to color after having been away from my studio for so long. I inked up 2 of the new stamps and I just love how my card turned out. I hope you like it too!

Hello Little Butterfly

This little cutie is Hello Little Butterfly and I paired her with Stone Pathway. Both are from Magnolia's 'Butterfly Dreams' collection and are available at Magnolia-licious, along with the rest of the collection. These gorgeous dp's are from PinkPaislee's 'Butterfly Garden' paper pad and they're just stunning! I love the entire pad. Tilda is backed with a matte that I cut using my Spellbinder's 'Lacey Square' die. The vertical strip was punched with a MS border punch and layered with some lace from my stash. The leaves were also cut with a MS border punch. Both the ribbon and pearl are from my stash. All of the flowers are from WOC.

I colored the entire scene with Copic markers. I honestly haven't worked with my DI's much lately because I've been enjoying my Copics. Sometimes you just need a change for a bit. But, I'm sure I'll miss them and will start using them again soon :-)

Here are the details of the colors that I used:

Skin: E0000, 000, 00, 01, 11, 13, R20
Hair: E41, 42, 43, 44, 47
Flowers: YR00, 04, R02, 08
Dress: E40, 81, YG91, 95, W00, 1, 3
Boots: E40, 41, 43, 44, W3
Rocks/Grass: E40, W1, 3, 5, 7, YG91, 95, E87
Sky: B0000, BG70

Well, that's it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you'll leave a little comment to let me know that you were here :-)

  6. Lovely! Absolutely LOVELY! Love your choice of colours, and your colouring is just perfect! I've tried out the Copics, but we're not able to get along... So I stick to my re-inkers.
