Today I’m showing my project in the World Wide Open Design Team challenge blog. As usual the theme is “Anything goes”.
For my project I’ve used Sherri Ann Baldy ”IMG781 – Butterfly Betsy”. You can find it by clicking the image title.
Butterfly Betsy reminds me of me, when I was younger laying in my parents’ garden on a summer afternoon and a butterfly came flying by, so I simply had to colour her. I decided to make her in bright colours opposed to the strong colours I usually love to use.
I used the following Copic markers for the project:
Skin: E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 and E04
Eyes: B29, B28 and B12
Hair: E44, E35 and E43
Dress: RV55 and RV63 Roses on dress: R22
Hat and flower on hat: E04 and R20
Bow on hat and legs: B00 and B000
Shoes: C5 and C3
Flowers: Y15 and YR14
Butterfly: YG63, G21, R20, B00, G00 and V01
The sky around her, I coloured with my with my Pergamano dorso colour blue and spread the colour with a cotton ball.
I made a frame from some flowery card stock I have and put it on card in teal, orange and red, which match the colours on the flowers on the card.
As embellishments on the card, I’ve used a swirl die, I have. I have 4 different size sun punches, which I’ve layered and used for the flowers. The smallest punch I used two of for the flower center, and I put a pearl on the center as well. Finally, I balanced the two flowers with two big yellow pearls on opposite corners.
I hope you like my card. Feel free to leave a message to let me know. Please join my blog if you would like to see my projects on a regular basis.
Be Happy Crafting!
