Butterfly Magical Day

Hi Folks,

I decided to play with an older ching-chou kuik fantasy image for my card. It's so hard to choose a Sweet Pea Stamp image and I find that at times I tend to forget to spread the love :-).

This is Fly Butterfly, part of Plate #21 and she is colored with copics. This time I chose the papers first - did help when it came to assembling my card.

The sentiment is from Plate #21. The flower is a mish-mash of scrap pieces. Leaves are grunge paper, the flower is chipboard and the rose bud is satin....

I'm not sure if you can see the shimmer on the chipboard flower, but I sprayed it with Smooch. I used some glitter pens to add some sparkle to the image.

I hope you enjoyed her. She was so very therapeutic to color, and I didn't even mention any mistakes!

Don't forget to check out the Sweet Pea Stamps store..... always great specials and don't forget about sending us your Sweet Pea Stamps creations.
