I am finally back. This week has been a busy one with lots of family. My son is off to Japan for a couple of years so our house was full with well wishers.
I chose to pattern this card after the third of three card sketches we had to choose from this week. I took my lead from Julie Ebersol and flipped the sketch around. The color scheme was a couple of different shades of green, a turquoise color, cream and brown. I chose to leave out the cream color and use white for the card base instead. I did cheat somewhat and added a touch of yellow to the butterfly.
I had SO MUCH fun coloring this butterfly. I colored him while my family watched a movie and it took the whole time. I tried the technique of flicking two different copic markers from opposite ends to come up with a third color in the center. It was a lot of fun.
I also did the paint splatters using the tips out of couple of Dylusion spray bottles and flicking it over the card base. I love the bright color. Color makes me happy. Have I said that before? I do have one very stained finger so I'll have improve on my method a little.
In this close up of the butterfly my obsession with the white gel pen surfaces again. Of course I also used some liquid pearls and white enamel accents on the tips as well as Stardust Stickles for some glamour.
