Butterfly Basics Sneak Peek

Hi there!  Hope everyone had a great weekend.  Seems that a lot of people are sick, though.  It's bad enough being sick, but at this time of year.....doubly bad!
This past weekend I spent a little time in the studio and played around with the new Butterfly Basics set from Stampin' Up!, which is in the new 2014 Occasions Catalog.  Loving this set!  (Actually, there are a bunch of awesome products in the new catalog AND in the Sale-A-Bration brochure!  Just sayin')  Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Blendabilities were used to color the flowers.  I didn't spend much time coloring/shading, just quick strokes to fill in the petals and leaves.  At first, I was going to leave the flowers as they were (stamped in black).  They just didn't look right and were begging for color!  Lol  That really made a difference.

OK, must run to an appointment.  Thanks for stopping in today!

  1. Beautiful card! I love this "botanical collage" style of stamp. The little chicken wire background stamp is adorable!
