Welcoming Butterfly

Welcome.

I so enjoyed working with the Bugaboo butterfly for the CCC Digi Challenge that I made another card with it, this time to welcome a German visitor. 


I changed the size to what I wanted, and again used my prismacolor pencils to colour it.


A thick layer of stickles was placed around the wings,


and a wee touch added to the leaves.


The sentiment was printed onto vellum and embossed in silver, the edges of the vellum were torn, and the ends wrapped around the edges of the white panel.

The corners of the white layer were punched, and the edges sponged with Broken China DI.
The final touches were the sequins.

Hi Maxine, Thought I had left a comment on this one earlier, but not seeing it, so either I'm dreaming or Blogger is teasing me. I love this butterfly and the look you have achieved with the pencils. The glitter outline really made the colors stand out and love the way you've done the sentiment on the vellum. Works a treat with the butterfly image...very light & airy. TFS & Hugs
