Now on with a few projects to tempt your muse...
For this card, I stepped away from my Copics (SHOCK!) and went "Old School" with my colored pencils and Gamsol. I thought the rose needed a bit more of a rustic feel and that I could achieve using my colored pencils and a bit of distress ink.
My second card was actually my first....Created before the storm...Like I said, this collection went through a BIG storm and...just like a butterfly travels through storm and struggle, it finds a way to get home...This collection did the same, it's home and more beautiful than ever!
I created this card for my mom for Mother's Day. I just LOVE the collage design in this stamp set and I really felt I needed to continue the theme with the beautiful butterfly in the collection...Just a bunch of traveling ladies..Powerful and so significant. Don't they look like they are resting after a long, long journey???
Here's a closer peek at the distressing I did on the collage itself. I love the rich colors and the pop of the sparkles...
