So the first thing I did on this card (not pictured) was to stamp the sentiment on a 1 inch strip of vellum. Then I set that aside while I worked on the rest of the card.
Stamp the butterfly, from Signs of Spring, onto white cardstock, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Begin coloring with Spectrum Noir OR3 marker, starting at the base of the wings and outward.
Side note -I mentioned in the video that I would have skipped this color if I had it to do over again. What happened is, I set out my colors and grabbed this marker by mistake, when I had intended it to be after the next color because it is lighter. When I switched to the last marker, it was darker than this one, rendering this marker somewhat irrelevant.
After coloring, use scissors to cut out the image.
After touching up with the FS3 marker, I used craft glue to adhere the butterfly in place.
If I were using Copics, I would probably reach for E02 or YR12 for this step.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful day!
