I hope you had a good weekend and a good Sunday. We did a lot of work around the house today. Hannah went to Disneyland with two of her friends to celebrate her 16th birthday. That is what she wanted to do, a nice day with two good friends. Her birthday is the 31st, which is Easter this year, so it makes it hard to do things with her friends on that day. They had a great time.
We had a late dinner of left overs, and then I went in the studio to make a card. I was trying to think of something to do tonight and just staring at my mess. I was looking at the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set and trying to figure out something different to do with it. Here is butterfly #83.
The thing that is different is the coloring in of the butterfly image. I decided to color each individual diamond of the butterfly using Elegant Eggplant. I first stamped the image in So Saffron ink. I then took a blender pen and pulled the so saffron ink off the little diamond shapes. I then colored in the diamond shpaes with the Elegant Eggplant marker. It was a lot of work but it looks cool. The rest of the card is pretty straight forward. Here is a close up of the butterfly.
