Butterfly Betsy

Hi there!

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
Grass: YG17
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!
