Flutter By

I used a  Peddlers Pack image in the Copic book and as a thank you from the company they sent me this amazing Butterfly Background stamp.  It took me 3 days to figure out how I wanted to color it and a whole bunch of hours carefully coloring.  Be sure and check out the other images they offer.  I have colored the cactus, dragonfly, apples and now the butterfly and love every one of them!!  I have included all the links for you.


I started out by stamping this image twice.  Once in Memento black and another in the cocoa.  The cocoa image is the base as i wanted the lines to be subtle and the black is the butterfly.  I colored the background including the butterfly in black (100) adding some image extensions with the Mulitliner pen.  what is an extension?  Its where i extended part of the image out where the butterfly would have been.   Then I proceeded to color the remaining image.  After coloring the butterfly in the W's (on the black stamped image, I cut it out and adhered only the center of the image to to card so the wings pop.








Copics Used:  R81 83 85 89, E35 57 79, W1 3 4 6 8 10, Y15 YR27, 100, multiliner

How gorgeously unique to color the butterfly in black and white. The flower background is so perfectly colored, I first thought it was a background paper. I also first thought that the butterfly was Lynell's stencil. Lol.
