ACK!!!! Oh, thank goodness I had a little crafty time today!! I’ve really needed it the last few days, and especially today. But enough about that. 😉
I had an idea pop into my head for the beautiful Play Date Cafe #154 colors for their 3rd Anniversary festivities (Happy Anniversary, Play Date Cafe – thanks for all the fun!). So I grabbed my Copic markers and a stamped butterfly image and then went to work. I used the iSpy Sketch #38 to help me bring the card together (since my brain is on extreme frazzle mode this week). This is my first attempt at the iSpy Sketches challenge.
I used a couple of new embossing folders for this. And it was brought to my attention that I had previously mis-attributed the butterfly stamp on one of my long-ago posts. I had attributed this butterfly stamp to Hero Arts, but after searching for someone today, I have learned that it is actually a Hampton Arts stamp set, and I had it labeled incorrectly in my stash. So now you can actually go find it, now that you know its correct name – if you want it! LOL. 😉
Anyhoo. I tried to achieve all 3 colors in the butterfly by blending my Copics a bit. I also sprayed it with a shimmer mist for a little subtle sparkle, which you can see better in the close-up photos.
Well, I’m off to sleep. I need a TON of it right now! I did sleep in this morning – a whopping 30 minutes – HA! It’s tough when you have young children in the next room who are so enthusiastic about waking up every morning to get busy with their exciting lives. 😉
Thanks for stopping by today!
