Botanical Butterflies

Here's a quick non-Christmas design. Do you ever need a bit of relief from red, green, and snowflakes? Well, that is one of the type of days I'm having!

Have you seen JustRite's "Botanical Butterflies?" What a lovely set. See all of the JustRite stamps HERE

I colored the image today with Copic Sketch markers, then hand trimmed it. It's layered over a Spellbinder Classic Circle die, Labels Four panel, and Classic Rectangle panel. Dimensional tape pops it all up, and Kaisercraft Rhinestones add a bit of bling.

I really am taken with My Mind's Eye "A Beautiful Life" decorator paper. Gorgeous, muted tones and pretty prints. I used SU's Whisper White Craft ink for smudge up the edges.

All of today's supplies are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Thanks for stopping by...be sure to come back for
Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style on Saturday!

Oh my word -- how absolutely stunning! You have colored that image to match the paper to absolute perfection -- LOVE this!

I thought the butterfly was cut out of the designer paper, until I read Sharon's comment and then read your blog more closely. What a wonderful job and great matching!! Nice change for this time of year!

This looks like a REAL butterfly!! Are you sure you colored it? :) Thanks again for such beautiful work.

I agree with Stacey - I thought it was out of the designer paper, until I read through the blog. Absolutely stunning! And I love the layers on layers.

Stunning indeed! I too thought your butterfly was cut from dsp. Wow Deb, you have incredible talent! I like looking at something other than Christmas now too. Just a quick break to rest. All the holiday stuff is making me anxious at how much I still need to do...and it isn't even December. lol! Thanks for the inspiration today.

Hi Deb~

Thinking of you a lot lately! This card is amazing! I mean that! I thought you stamped the butterfly on matching paper (from the bg dp) and cut it out and popped it up! You color so amazingly! I wouldn't have thought it was colored if you didn't write it in the blog.

Thanks for sharing this special treat!
