Hello everyone!  Betsy on the blog today featuring a card made with the Just Butterflies Digital Stamp Set.  This stamp set is truly versatile and so very pretty!  Let me show you how I made my card.   I started by composing my butterflies and sentiment in the computer and printing it out onto some pink patterned card stock from my stash.

I found this paper very inspiring.  It’s a beautiful shade of pink with some text/numbers ghosted in gray.  I die cut my panel with a stitched die before coloring.  I used a scrap of the left over paper to try some different color combinations with my Copics.  I finally settled on a pink one.

I chose 3 sections on each wing to reverse my shading.  So most of the petals had the shading on the inside end, the 3 sections I chose had it on the outer end.  I like the way that made them stand out.

The end result of the reverse shading really made the wings pop.  I went on to color the other butterfly.  Copic colors used:  RV21, RV63, RV34, RV66, C5.  Once all the coloring was done, I made a slimline card base from some light gray card stock.  The card when closed measures 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.  I added a panel of silver glitter paper to the gray panel that was 1/8″ smaller.  To that I added a black card stock panel that was 1/8″ smaller than the glitter paper.

Before adhering my pink panel to the card, I stamped a post mark stamp on the lower right corner in pale gray ink.  This is very subtle but adds to the harmony of the card.  I adhered my butterfly panel to the card base.

I felt the card needed a bit of sparkle.  I have some mirror baubles in different sizes and I had a mirror heart that matched.  A touch of shimmer pen to the 3 sections on each wing that I reversed the shading and my butterfly card was done!

This digistamp set was such a pleasure to work with and will be such a staple to my digistamp collection!
