Catch A Dream

Hello!  My card today is for the challenge over at the Color Me Creative Classroom. The challenge this month is to use the colors of Valentines Day and there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs, so be sure to check it out! I used images from my newest set, Whimsical Spring.

 I started by stamping the butterfly with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used Copic markers to color, using RV19 for the deepest shading.

 Added RV25.

 Added RV21 and used my blender pen to smooth out the highlights.

 I touched up some of the shading with RV19 (sometimes it fades after using the blender pen) and used N5 for the body.  I also colored the smaller butterfly the same way.

 I cut a piece of Pure Luxury White card stock to 3 1/8 by 3 1/8 inches and sponged Memento Angel Pink.

 Sponged Memento Rose Bud.

 Sponged Memento Lady Bug.

Then stamped the leafy branch with Memento Lady Bug.

I stamped the sentiment directly onto my background. The butterflies were cut out and adhered with Pop Dots. I layered with Pure Luxury Lipstick Red card stock and cut a piece of Bubblegum Pink with my Fluer De Lis die. The card base is Pure Luxury white and is 5 by 5 inches.

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