Sweet Butterfly

Hi All!

Hope you are having a great Thursday! We've been playing outside and the kids were swimming earlier, such a nice summer day here. Hope it's nice where ever you are too.

I created a card this afternoon for a few challenges. I started out with a different image, but was having some technical difficulties! If anyone has tips on digital images and how to color without smudging the ink, please share!

I used the sketch from Delightful Sketches and some SU cardstock in Old Olive, Pink Pirouette, and Purely Pomegranate. The papers are BasicGrey Lemonade, what else! LOL! I used this sweet Tilda as a butterfly image and colored her with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen and a gold Spica glitter pen. The edges on this card have been distressed with scissors. I really like the distressed look, plain edges look too...well plain!

The colors on this card fit this week's Charisma Cardz challenge of lemon, green, and pink. I embellished with some Prima flowers, various ribbons, and some buttons. Tilda wings have been glittered up with Dazzling Diamond Dust and crystal effects. I think this sweet image is perfect for the challenge at Cupcake Craft which is sweet somethings. They are celebrating a birthday and doing it big over there, check it out!

Thanks for coming by today. I'm off now to work on my card for tomorrow's Stamp Something challenge. Nothing like waiting until the last minute! Happy stamping! :)

So cute Denise!!! Love this paper and your coloring is so lovely!!! Sometimes I get eye smudgies from digi images, so I heat set with my gun for 30sec. Great sparkle!

Fabulous card and your coloring is perfect. I too heat set or use copic markers, which don't seem to smudge inkjet ink. Thanks for joining this week at Charisma Cardz.
