Butterfly in Flight

Happy Saturday! I got a chance to play along with the SCS inspiration challenge this morning. I used this photo for my inspiration. I used the butterfly from Hope is Faith and the branch from Hang in There.

I used Copic markers to color the butterfly, starting with R27.

Added YR07, coloring completely over the red and extending past it a bit.

Added YR04.

Added YR12.

Added Y17.

Filled in with Y13, then added YR04 to the outer spots.

Used N5 on the body and then cut out the image.

For the background, I sponged Memento Summer Sky.

Sponged Memento Danube Blue.

Sponged Memento Paris Dusk.

Stamped the branch with Memento London Fog.

I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and Lemon Drop and used a Smoky Slate cardbase.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
