I used a beautiful butterfly from a stamp set called ''Beautiful Spring'' from The Crafts Meow, that my dear friend Patti Willey gave me as a gift. This card is made with a combination of elements from different stamp sets, including the sentiment from a Power Poppy acrylic stamp set called Short Stacks and the beautiful frame from a retired Flourishes stamp set called Country Charm Labels .
I stamped the butterfly on Vellum with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it in white, then I colored it with my Prismacolor pencils in Violet (PC932) and Parma Violet (PC1008) using a technique I saw the amazing Marika Rahtu do on THIS beautiful card. I gave the butterfly wings a bit of highlights with my SU Elegant Eggplant marker.
I stamped the sentiment using the Elegant Eggplant marker and the frame was stamped with SU Wild Wasabi ink.
This is the Cue Card that inspired this card.
I hope you like this card. As always, I thank you so much for stopping by and for your comments. If you have a question, I'm here to help.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
