Butterflies and Lace

Hello! Today's card is one I made for one of the Hope You Can Cling To challenges at SCS. There are challenges all month long and great prizes up for grabs and it is for a great cause. My card is for Lee's inspiration challenge. I used images from Celebrate The Season rubber stamp set.

The butterfly was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics, starting with RV19.

I added RV25.

Then added RV23.

Then I used my colorless blender to smooth out the highlights. I stamped the smaller butterfly and colored it the same way, then cut out both images.

I cut a piece of Pure Luxury Ivory card stock to 3 3/4 by 2 1/4 inches and sponged with Memento Angel Pink.

I stamped the leafy branch stamp using Memento Rose Bud ink, but stamped off on scratch paper first to make the image lighter.

I used Memento Rich Cocoa and Rose Bud to stamp the sentiment.

I layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown and Innocent Pink and used an Ivory card base. I trimmed two pieces from a doily for the side pieces and then accented with self adhesive pearls. The butterflies were adhered with Pop Dots.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a fabulous day!

This is so beautiful, as always. I love the doilies and the pearl accents. I also love that you used brown with the pink. This is so perfect for "hope you can cling to".
