Late Night Butterfly


I made this card late into the wee hours of the morning over the weekend..., hence the title Late Night Butterfly.  I had in my mind what I wanted to do for the longest time, and just had to see if it turned out the way I envisioned it, and it did!  I finally got the perfect large dauber sponges that to me are much easier to use and can achieve an even coloring without being all splotchy (if you know what I mean). I stamped the butterfly from Take Flight on a scrap piece of white and colored it with Copics, embossed it with Versamark and clear EP.  I cut it out and paper pieced it on top of the one in the main focal panel.  I am so pleased with how it turned out...  It turned out just as I pictured it! *~* (don't you love it when that happens!!!)

I created another one similar with a slightly different color scheme, but it is postal and hasn't landed yet :o)  I had a sweet stamper in mind and hope she gets it soon!
