Spread Your Wings and Fly

Hope everyone has been having a great week.  This card works for our Fun Stampers Journey Challenge and also for Mojo Monday 333 design.  The FSJ Challenge called for Butterflies, so I decided to use our stamp, Gifted Wings.  When I saw this paper with flowers by Kaiser Craft, I knew I had to have it. What goes better with butterflies than flowers.

My butterflies are colored with Copic Markers R81, R83, R85 and R0000. A very light coat of of Journey Glaze was brushed on to the butterflies and dusted with glitter. I am really happy with the results!

Hoppy Spring

Sorry I have not posted for a while but just wasn’t up to it. Now I feel like I am back on an even keel and I can get things done. This is a card I completed for a challenge at Fun Stampers Journey. The challenge asks you to make a Spring card using the new Spring colors. I know the people in the North and East are definitely hoping that Spring arrives sooner than later. I really feel for them

The background of the card consists of Fun Stampers Journey card stock, Morning Mist, Orange Creamcicle, and Pretty Amethyst. I added a Spellbinders die, Resplendent Rectangles to complete the background. I chose Spring Fling Bunny from FSJ stamp set and colored it with Copic Markers added Journey Glaze and glitter to finish him. I took the daisy stamp from The April Showers stamp set and placed them around the bunny. They were also colored with Copic Markers. A little bling finishes it off. 
I wish the photo was better so you can see the true color.
                          Copic Markers used:
                                E30, E33, Y11, Y18, R11, R22

Hope you like the card and if you can leave a comment that would be great! Thanks for stopping by and please stop back. 
Wishing you a great Valentine's Day!
