A Fluttery Blog Hop


Flutterby Wednesday is back with everyone's favorite, an OPEN Challenge - just remember to use a butterfly or fairy on your creation!  To celebrate we are kicking things off with a Blog Hop featuring the new design team.  You should have arrived here from the ever talented Kristie's blog.  If not start at the Flutterby Wednesday blog so you don't miss any of the fluttery goodness!

For my card I have used an image by Saturated Canary called Butterfly Princess.  My coloring skills don't do this gorgeous image anywhere near justice, but she's still beautiful.  I love coloring in monochromatic neutral tones and adding a splash of color.  I used warm gray copic markers and R08 for the red bits.  If you look closely, you can see the sparkle on her hair, the red accents and even on the butterflies in the designer paper that I added with a clear spica glitter pen.  {grin - I love sparkle!}

Time to see what treat you'll find on Tara's blog next!

Thanks for fluttering by!
