Thinking of You

Teal, dark brown and white.  What an amazing color combo!  That is the challenge at OCL this week.  Once again I am breaking out my favorite stamp set "Natures Notes" and playing with that gorgeous butterfly! about that die cut on the front!  I just got that in the mail last week.  From England!  The company name is Marianne's Creatables and they are awesome!  Watch out for some of the other dies that I bought to come up on projects soon. 
Another first in this project, I colored with my copics on kraft cardstock inside the card.  Not to bad although you do have to use quite darker colors to get them to show enough.
Image & Sentiment:  Our Craft Lounge:  Natures Notes
Coloring:  Copic Markers
Paper:  Neenah solar crest
Stamp ink:  Memento
Glitter:  Dazzling Diamonds from SU
Paper, ribbon and half pearls:  from my stash
**Note:  I am still on with my new years resolution and have not bought any DP this year!**
The gorgeouse butterfly is stamped on the die cut.  Another is stamped on some scrap paper, colored, cut out.
The body is glued to the die cut, the wings are popped up for dimension.
