The New Pretty!

Happy Easter Sunday,

I hope you all have a lovely day whatever you are doing.

I am back with another card inspired by the 'Strong' challenge at CASology-sorry CASology DT for yet another entry! I didn't realise how many sentiments I had focused around this cue word but it has been fun using them and it has inspired me to start an Art Journal with the first page focused on being strong. I think it will be a good to have a page like this that I can look back on when I need a little extra strength to help me through the tough times.

Anyway, enough dribble and back to me card:


Yes that is copic colouring you see! Water colouring yesterday, copic colouring today...goodness what is happening to me-CAS is still there! The colours were taken again from the butterflies in the photo from The Card Concept. (CAS this time)

The lay out from CAS(E) this Sketch.

The butterfly stamp is from STAMPlorations and I will enter it into their CAS challenge using the twist of pastel colours

The sentiment is from The Ton and I will enter it into their April AG challenge. I heat embossed it in white.

Enjoy you day x

  1. Wow Sandie I love this! My intention is to color this butterfly in the similar way, using different colors for different areas of the butterfly, and you have mastered this! Great look. I also love love love that sentiment -when I come over, I want to heat emboss it to some card bases so I can stamp over it when back at home and it will resist the stamping! Love it here with white on black. Great card hon!

  7. The broad strip with sentiment and that colored butterfly are so decorative together. The sentiment is the focal point and the butterfly is like an embellishment. Very pretty.
