Flights of Fancy

I think it is time to start some Valentine cards. I do not have a significant other, but I do make many cards for friends, so I am always on the look out for images that I can use for friends. This Penny Black stamp is certainly one, and it is also fun to colour. I used my Misti to make this card very easy to do and I used the colours from the colour challenge at Splitcoaststampers today, which are green, pink and blue. I arranged the butterfly and sentiment in my Misti and first stamped the sentiment with chipped sapphire distress ink, and removed it. I then coloured the butterfly with doCraft markers using green and pink and used black for the butterfly antennae, and once finished the stamping I coloured in the butterfly with the respective colours. I removed my card from the Misti and put in another piece of cardstock, and again coloured the image with my markers, then fussy cut each piece and sponged on the greens and pinks. I styled the butterfly and attached to my card base using glossy accents, and to finish a few sequins. Thanks for having a visit today.
