Summer Butterfly...

I was lucky enough to win Connie's Sweet Pea blog candy last week. Woo! Thank you Connie & Lynette! My goodies arrived this week, and I just could wait to ink them up!

Included in the candy was the gorgeous Fly Butterfly as well as the sentiment I used on the card.

I airbrushed the background of the image with Copic BG72, YR31, and E08 before coloring Fly Butterfly in with copic markers. I added a bit of Stardust Stickles to her dress & wings and the handmade flower for a bit of bling.

Copic markers used:

Challenges I participated in with this card:

Sweet Pea Stampers - sketch
Pollycraft - Here Comes the Sun
Paperplay - stamp + bling
Colour Create - color challenge + circles
Delightful Sketches - pull out your punches (used circle punches and oval punches)
Crafty Creations - magical

Thanks for stopping by!
