Butterfly Kisses

Sunday 2 June 2013

Hi everyone,
I hope you're all keeping well?
It's been one of those weeks where I've been really busy but have nothing to show for it, I hate that!

We have another challenge for you this week from the Pink Team at Eclectic Ellapu.
Our lovely May has chosen a fab challenge for us this week!  It is...

Anything With Wings!

I always think it sounds like a difficult challenge and then you think of all the lovely things with wings you get loads of inspiration!

Here's what I did:

My image is Springtime by Saturated Canary and I coloured her with the following copics:  Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; E23,Y26,23,21. Clothes; RV29,25,21,B04,02,01,Y19,17,15,13,11,YG97,95,93,91. Grass: E44,31,G99,24,07,YG17,07. Sky; B00,000,0000,C1,00.  I used some pebeo paints to highlight the flowers.

The papers are Echo Park, Here and Now.  The swirl and the little butterfly are laser-cut shapes by Make it Crafty which I painted with the same pebeo paints that I used on the image.  The sentiment is from the Dreamdays set by LOTV and I cut it out with Spellbinders dies.  The butterfly is by Prima and I got it in some blog candy that I won recently! :)  The bling and the ribbon is from my stash.

The inside more or less matches the front and the sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! Happiest Birthday Wishes set.

So pop over to Eclectic Ellapu and take a look at what the rest of the DT have done, they're so talented!
