Butterfly Summer

     I wanted to do a summery card in cool colors to make my mind think that our temperatures were well below the 110 degree mark.  I chose this image from Ching-Chou Kuik and colored it all in blues and purples.  You know butterflies wouldn't be out in heat that high, right?


     I used my ProMarkers to color her and the butterflies, then cut her with a die from Spellbinders.  I backed the die cut with medium blue paper and mounted it onto a light blue card front.  I printed and hand cut the sentiment, then added a dimensional butterfly.  The die cut was so delicate and complex, that I decided the butterfly was the only embellishment needed but I did add glitter to her wings.

     Challenges:

     OK, I'm now pretending that it's 85 outside instead of 101 at midnight!  The butterflies are going to be flitting about in the afternoon instead of hiding in the shade away from the heat.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
