Rose Butterfly

Hello Precious Peeps!  
I was really happy to make this card with my new digital image I call "Rose Butterfly" from Whimsy Stamps.   It is on sale this month at %25 percent off.  And in fact, the sale is storewide on all Whimsy stamps and digi images!  Check it out at the store:

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Flutter By Wednesdays: open challenge, as long as the image is a butterfly, fairy or angel
Creative Card Crew: Sparkle and Shine (hard to see, but I put M.S. sparkle on the leafy swirls coming out from the flower
The Shabby Tea Room: A Little Bit of Metal (butterfly charm in the bottom left corner)
Stamping Sisters In Christ: Challenge #53 Psalm 56:3

I'm rather proud of my attempt at making a home made flower!  I used a blossom die from Spellbinders.  Sponged some rosey pinks on the edges and spritzed them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (cherry I think).  Punched a hole in the middle and added the pearly thing, which was from a package of wedding embellies found at Mike's.  The swrily white leafy things coming from the flower are Tim Holtz pre-punched grunge board, painted with white acrylic paint, and then sprinkled with some Martha Stewart Cabarerra glitter.  I like how it is grainy and white while glittery at the same time. 
Anyhoo, that's enough of the technical stuff!  Sorry, no colour list, but I did use Copics.  I need to get back into the habit of writing them down as I colour!
Here is your close-up: 

God bless you Peeps, thanks for coming by.  
God loves YOU! xo

  22. Hi Crissy,
    I'm so happy and have to tell you! I've been having problems blending at times and after watching your video's, I figured its the paper I'm using. I ran out to Curry's today and picked up the Canson Manga paper. They only had 150 lb 9x12. Eekk! Is this the one you use? I cut it down to 8.5x11 and prayed it would go through my laser printer. With a little went through! Whew! I didn't doubt you for a minute... this paper blends beautifully!! I've been using a shiny type paper (Aquabee). Most times its okay but other times the ink pools and is frustrating. I ordered some Neenah paper to try, hopefully it agrees with me. Have coloured a bunch of images on the Canson, will try to put together a card and enter your Sunday Challenge...I've got 4 days!! Thanks again and cheers!
    Big Hugs, Kathie

  23. Amazing colouring, deserves to be framed up! Thanks for sharingxx
