For some time I have intended to play over at MrsA's Butterfly Challenge, and this week I have made my card and have it photographed and ready to go!!
I was inspired by a set of stamps that came with a magazine some time ago, that I have finally inked up, with my markers, and used.
I painted the images using the same markers, by wiping some ink onto an acrylic block and picking it up with a wet paintbrush, giving a no-line look. I loved the result with this pink lily.
The humming bird was painted with blue and green and I then added some purple - the two tail feathers I mixed the blue and green to give some variation of colour
I added this part of the sentiment to the bottom right, and highlighted it with pearls
And added the peach coloured die cut butterfly with a matching pearl over some patterned paper that was a snippet I from a piece of marbled paper, and outlined the edge of the card with a fine purple doodle.
This is the inside, finished with the birthday greeting and another snippet of the marbled paper
The challenge was to use this wheel as our inspiration
I managed everything but the paper piecing.
