I’ve been wanting to play along for awhile and found a little extra time on my hands today. It’s my first time playing Tuesday Trigger and here’s the inspiration. Isn’t it gorgeous?
And here’s what I came up with.
I used a Krylon gold pen for the edges…it adds a nice pop in person.
Several layers make the image really stand out.
What do you think? I really had fun with the challenge. The butterfly is from Antique Flowers & Butterflies (Hero Arts) and colored with Copics. Looking forward to next week’s challenge! Thanks for stopping by!

I’ve had my eye on this stamp and die set for awhile now. I was so happy to see it at Joann’s last week and used a 50% coupon on it, which made it a great deal! This card was cut for something else but it worked well with the butterflies, so I used it anyway. I used Circle Nesties to cut the frame and adhered the large butterfly to the inside of the card.
The butterflies were colored with Copics and I love the dimension this card has. Next month I’m taking the Copic Certification class and I’m so excited! My coloring skills could use some instruction and of course, I’ve been a huge fan of the instructor, Debbie Olson, for a long time! Yay! I will let you all know how it goes, I can’t wait! Thanks for stopping by!

Owls have been so popular lately. I like the sets I’ve seen so far, but none of them really grabbed me. Well, last week I was in Archiver’s and saw these cuties by Hero Arts. I had found an owl set that I liked enough to get! Aren’t they cute? These were quick and fun to put together, and I love the 3×3 size. I even added some liquid applique to the cuff of the boots of the owl in the top hat. The cardinal and frog card are from Stampin Up. Thanks for looking!

This little guy is from Pink Cat Studio. I love these animals, they’re so cute and I love their expressions. I cut out the cupcake he was holding and gave him a big cuppa joe. Some days I need a cup this big to get me going! LOL! Image was watercolored and accented with markers.
