Hi, There!

I love butterflies so this was an easy card for me to create.  The image is from Tim Holtz.  To color it up, I went back to my watercolor pencils/Koh i noor, which I have not used in a long time - Yellow, Red, Purple, Gold.  Then I went in with  one Copic marker - Y15.  Next I used some Acrylic Silks - Persimmon, Wine & Roses, and Golden Monarch - this is my first time using these and they give such a beautiful shine - can't see it in the photo but it is very shimmery!  Background is Brusho Watercolor Crystals.  Used a clear stamp from my stash "Thinking Of You" and sequins. Striped background is from my stash.

Challenges I would like to enter this card:
Crafting With Friends Challenge #15 - Anything Goes
Creative Artiste Challenge #11 - Mixed Media

2nd Card
Just had to make one more card - for fun and use my Radiant Pearls that I just found hidden - you know how that goes;)

Same image but now I am using my "old" Radiant Pearls - Caspian Sea, Sour Lemon, and Candy Apple - talk  about shine!!  This whole butterfly is just radiant glows of color!

The background again I used my Brusho Water Color Crystals.  Added some sequins.  Wanted to keep both these cards CAS!  Thanks for stopping by, till next time, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
