Spring Is Sprung

Another new challenge for me this week - the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. This week is 'Spring Is Sprung', I do not use orange/peach that much on cards but actually I think its a very pretty colour depending on how its used. I have stamped Butterfly Bear out and coloured with Copics, adding a little glitter to the butterflies with a gold Spica pen. I have then cut this out with Nestabilities and mounted to the base with 3d foam. The base is sheets from the CWC Ice Cream Parlour Collection mounted to DB Melon CS with Peach Seam Binding wrapped around. I have punched a MS Monarch Butterfly out of more Melon CS and then sprinkled with DB Tangerine Sugar Coating Glitter. CWC Tiny Sentiment also 3d foamed and the card finsihed off with tiny pearls.

STAMPS: Penny Black. Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Doodlebug Designs. TOOLS: Nestabilities dies, Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly, Copic Markers - bear: E25, E27; butteflies: YR21, Y23, Spica Gold; grass: G21, G24; blue shadow: B91 & blender pen. EMBELLISHMENTS: Seam Binding by The Ribbon Girl, Doodlebug Ultrafine Sugar Coating Glitter, Craftwork Cards Tiny Sentiments, Pearls by The Hobby House.
