Dawn of the Butterfly

Hello! My card today is for the Featured Stamper Challenge at SCS. This week Dawn Easton (aka Treasure Oiler) is the featured stamper. I chose this card, from Dawn's gallery, for inspiration. Participants were to change at least two things. I changed...

Different colors
Used a bow in place of the flower
Different (but similar) stamps.

The butterfly is from Take Flight (Gina K) and is colored with Copics. I started with RV29.

Added RV25.

Added RV23 and left a portion un-colored.

I used my blender pen in large circles to pull some of the surrounding color into the highlighted areas.

Cut a circle with my Nestabilities and then sponged Regal Rose ink while still in the die.

Cut a rectangle and sponged Regal Rose ink along the edges.

Ran it through my Cuttlebug, using my Swiss Dots CB folder. Then I added a little more sponging (with a nearly dry sponge dauber) to add a little colors to the dots so they would stand out a little more. .

I layered with Chocolate Kiss (GKD) and used a Pretty in Pink (SU) cardbase. The little bit of designer paper on the smaller circle is from a Basic Grey Bittersweet paper pack. The sentiment is from Botanical Dreams. I also sponged the circle and stamped it with Pretty in Pink with the crackle background stamp from Bold Flowers.

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

Ooooooh!!!, es precioso, siempre entro a verte tus trabajos, aunque a veces no comento porque me da pena decir siempre lo mismo, pero es que tengo que decir que son fantáticos, aunque me repita, porque es lo que siento cuando los veo. Eres una gran profesora. Bss, gracias por tus clases.
