Alighted Butterfly by Pickled Potpourri



Here is a beautiful digital image from Pickled Potpourri called Alighted Butterfly.  It is a collage that makes a card almost on its own.  It just needs to be colored.  I used Copic markers to color.

Here's a close-up of the image.

Alighted Butterfly digital stamp by Pickled Potpourri
XPress Blending Card
Patterned Papper - Peacock collection by Creative Memories
Green Bazzill cardstock
Lace
Stick-on Pearls
Copic Markers (Y21, Y32, Y35, Y38, Y000, YG93, YG95, YG97, R14, R17, R11)

Pretty. The Butterfly looks so real with your wonderful coloring. Like the lace & edge punch used. I'm fond of Butterflies and look forward to Spring when the Butterflies will be back. Her in Central TX the temps are in the low 30s with it fluctuating to 40s-50s & 70s. Thank you for entering OSAAT Ch198 Anything Goes.

Paula-Kay you are so right when you say that the image is so beautiful that it almost makes the card itself but it is your stunning colouring and the sensitivity in adding the delicate lace that have truly shown the image in all its beauty. This is such a special card that I'm hoping you've got someone special in mind to give it to.

Thank you for sharing this lovely card in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
