Soothing is what I was going for with this card, not quite sure I got what I was really after. Initially I tried using my watercolor wonder crayons but it was way to light so I colored the stamp with my SU! markers.
My card is for 2 challenges, the first is for Stamp TV's color challenge, Jennie received a Vera Bradley purse from her mother and that was her inspiration for today's colors, I chose a couple of the colors from the purse that went excellent with the Dirty Dozen Inspiration challenge, which had similar colors, I chose this for my inspiration not only for the colors but also for the butterflies!!!! Because I wanted the card to be on a softer soothing side, I cut the butterflies out twice, once with Certainly Celery and then with Vellum, I creased the vellum to give the look of them flying and because the inspiration piece had some sparkle I added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles in the middle of their bodies!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
