The Card Concept Challenge #7

IMG_4223


It's time for Challenge #7 at The Card Concept.




Inspired by the colours of the butterfly I coloured a stamped butterfly with Copic makers.
I stamped the image on a panel and coloured before adhering to the card base. This way the recipient will not see the marker bleed on the inside of the card. As a finishing touch I added some Wink of Stella to the orange on the butterfly.  I am also going to share this card for Challenge #2 at Time Out Challenges based on the inspiration photo below my card.

Gorgeous butterfly and card.

The coloring of your butterfly is so much like the photo Tracey...beautiful job... it always surprises me that butterflies can have so many different meanings..very happy for a birthday card, or very soothing like on a sympathy card.
