Rainbow Butterfly

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I have a card I made for the Trigger Tuesday challenge at Moxie Fab. The imagery in the inspiration photo was so light and airy, I decided to go with a CAS card and keep a lot of white space. I used images from the Organize It! StampTV kit.

I used Copics to color the butterfly, starting with RV25.

Added RV23.

Added Y17.

Added Y21.

Added BG02.

Added B04.

For the background, I cut a rectangle using my Nestabilities, then sponged Memento Danube Blue, while the cardstock was still in the die. The Danube Blue is pretty intense, so I kept my sponge dauber pretty dry to keep the color light and even.

I stamped the silhouette foliage with Memento Danube Blue and layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx. The sentiment is from Spring Florals. I added some score lines on either side of the sentiment and piercing around two corners of the image panel. The butterflies were cut out and popped up using Pop Dots.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is stamptastic!
