Yellow Butterfly

Happy Wednesday or hump day everyone! Here's a card I did for the SCS sketch challenge. Not a lot of stamping on this one!

Sentiment is stamped in Palette Noir and is from Great Greetings from The Angel Company. the designer paper is from Hot Off The Press called "color me" and is the butterfly version in the pack of paper. It's thin white paper with embossed butterflies and then you can use just about any coloring medium to enhance it. I used Studio G yellow chalk ink direct to paper for this.

I cut one of the butterflies out and popped it up using foam tape. To highlight the butterfly I took a sponge dauber and Marigold pigment ink from Colorbox and lightly added it towards the center. The blue cardstock is from Lasting Impressions called Cornflower. Finally, I added some tiny self adhesive pearls to the sentiment panel.

Thanks for stopping in! I hope you have a creative day!

This is absolutely stunning - very soft and I thought you stamped the bg papers - the yellow chalks really made it pop.
