Hi all! I have a cheery card to share with you all today. This smiling butterfly is just too cute, she's a digi image from Pickled Potpourri Designs' Cutie Pies stamp set.
I colored this image using Spectrum Noir markers. I'm slowly adding them to my alcohol marker collection. I usually wait until they go on sale for $7.88 at ACMoore and will pick up a pack or two. I didn't think I'd like them, but I really like the newer designed markers! They color and blend pretty well without bleeding, which was a common complaint about these markers when they first became popular among card makers a few years ago.
I matted the image and adhered it to the card front using foam tape. I then stamped the sentiment on a strip of white cardstock using pink dye ink and tucked it behind the image. I used some white embroidery floss and a button to embellish the card.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges
4 Crafty Chicks: Something Old/Something New. The image, pink patterned paper, & markers are my new items. The green patterned paper mat is my old item.
