Me and Carrie Lou Butterfly




I truly do love this image, and the way this butterfly has so many different looks. This time I used my Copic markers for the leaves and flowers, and then colored the wings with watercolor pencils to get the soft, delicate hint of color. The flowers were cut out from another stamping, and double stacked to give the card extra dimension. The green background was embossed with the brand new Cuttlebug Persia folder, which created a perfect frame. I added tiny "skittles" like dew drops to the corner, and that was it...no sentiment or other stamping...let this be a card for any occasion. I hope you like it!
Check out this stamp, and many other beautiful Victorian, floral, and holiday stamps at Me and Carrie Lou!... I'm going to Lakeland next week to get more :o)
I'll see you soon!
Happy crafting~
