Hearts and a Butterfly


This month's sponsor for a Bit More Time To Craft Challenge #29 is 
Odd Ball Art,  I have used the image #317 in the Big Eyed Girl Series

 I coloured her with Prismacolor pencils, and coated the hearts in the background with Glossy Accents to emphasize them.  I then cut the image out with an elegant S/B Labels One die.  

I mounted this over some of Lozzy's lovely paper - this is one from the Elegant series of 12 patterns of paper.

I added a simple sentiment mounted on ribbon, and added a few heart sequins.

The butterfly is is  M/B die cut from metallic paper. 

The beautiful paper by Lozzy was so pretty that I used some of it on the inside of the card.

  5. Such a cute image and you've coloured her in beautifully. Missed admiring all the wonderful inspiration on the blogs whilst I've been away x

  6. Fab pencil coloring on this young lady. (love her striped mitts). Perfect choice for the elegant S/B die to shape her pretty self, and the background paper is lovely! Adding the metallic color of the butterfly was a splendid pop of bright color and I like that you made the wings in the red, but had body in the softer kraft color. Splendid work on this pretty card.TFS & hugs

  7. Sweet card, thanks for sharing with Morgan's Artworld!

  8. The die cut frame is awesome and really fits this lovely lady, although I do have to say these big eyed girls always look sad to me. That butterfly is awesome and now I want to go cut some metallic butterflies. I also want some arm warmers like hers, but for fatter arms!

  9. She is a cute Image and the butterfly is beautiful using this paper...added sweet on your card..
    Beautifully made Maxine
    Happy sunday

  10. Beautifully coloured image, Maxine. And I like the ribbon and the die cut butterfly looks store bought. The inside of the card is equally pretty.

  11. Wow, beautifully coloured! And you are right that paper is perfect for the inside; it makes the card complete! Enjoy the week!

  12. I love your card! The coloring looks amazing! Thanks for linking up with us over at PDE Linky Party :)

  14. Ooh Maxine I love your cutie. I never thought of using my Prismacolours to colour an image like this and now I will be having a go. What a lovely way to colour and so enjoyable too.
    You have made a super job of her and the extras you have included, butterfly, diecut shape, backing paper, all ad to the overall loveliness of the card.
    Hugs, Neet xx
