I would like to enter this
"Spring Up" Card
in the Karen's Doodles Challenge
Although not technically "Patriotic" for the 4th of July,
I loved this image and couldn't resist the color challenge.
I learned a new trick this week to "Pop" digi stamps!
I printed the butterfly twice, cut him out and pop dotted him!
Thank you to Donna Mundinger for the tip on this "trick"
I made the flowers from a tutorial Penny Duncan posted.
Although the flowers aren't her creation, she posted the link to the YouTube video tutorial.
I saw this style card (called a "Spring up Card") on Splitcoast Stampers.
I still do all my coloring in Colored Pencils, but Copics are absolutely on my wishlist...
For the butterfly's wings, I just dabbed a little water on the paper and swirled some blue into it.
I was trying for a "swirly" look, and I think I achieved that...
After going back and looking at this post, I realize that when you click on the picture, it brings up a H-U-G-E picture!
Not sure how to fix that, but I'll try to figure it out!
But, wow, the goofs sure show when it's enlarged from 5 1/2" to 8x10! (-:
I think it looks WAY better in real life and at actual size...
