Papertrey Princess Challenge #3


Today I want to share a card I made with some fun new stamps! I wanted to color something for Michele's challenge, so I stamped the butterflies and colored them with Copic markers.



The background stamp is the new Tin Type background stamp, stamped with Lavender Moon ink onto Lavender Moon paper. The sentiment is from Damask Designs, one of my favorites to use!



Here is a close up of the coloring--I still need a lot of practice coloring with my Copic marker, probably a class would be good too!

Thanks for looking!
Melissa

Ink: Lavendar Moon, Dark Chocolate, Antique Linen and Walnut Stain (Ranger)

This is gorgeous. I like the butterflies... I think they would look great on an Easter card. Cross on the front and then the butterfly symbloizes that Jesus has Risen.

We need to talk to get you started on my project.
