Fusion Card Challenge #4

IMG_3865

Happy Family Day Canada!
I hope that today you are spending time with family.
Since we are all home today we are heading out to visit my mother-in-law.


I had a chance to create a card for the current Fusion Card Challenge.  I was so inspired by the butterflies and knew exactly what set I was going to use. I stamped the butterfly on vellum with Stazon Jet Black and soloured the image from behind with Copics. I like the effect.

This card is so beautiful. I love its simpleness and that it has such a soft, feminine quality. Simply perfect!

Joyce said...

Wow--you totally nailed the inspiration and the sketch. Just so beautiful. And, you are brave to use Stayzon ink. I have a bunch but am too scared to use it--doesn't it stain terribly? This is such a fabulous card.

Lindsey said...

So I've been catching up on all your latest posts...love them! But I had to comment on this particular one...it is gorgeous! Such a brilliant idea to color the vellum from behind. It created such a lovely softness.
