"Oh The ButterFlies" Card

Hello friends,
Today I'm sharing with you a fun card using all the 'Spots' for the new ( TheStampSpot.com) look 'Spots' challenge! Hope this Card will inspire you to join in and play along with us. I also played along with the sketch challenge over at Some Odd Girl!
For today's card I have used Chocolate Mocha cardstock for the base, paired with a Brad for the centre of the bow, that has been tied with some  Twine . I've also used a Some Odd Girl stamp on some  Neenah (solar white) cardstock.The Butterflies were die cut from Fiskars punch and My Minds Eye (lost&found) cardstock . I created some visual interest by adding some hand sewing on the card and a bit of Stickles to the wings of main image. 

Copic's Used: Skin (YR0000,YR000,YR00,W3,R02), Eyes (G29,G24,G21,G12), Hair (E57,E55,E51,E31)

Hope this inspires your crafty mojo!

  5. Sandra this is gorgeous!! I love the lovely ethereal feel it has!! So sweet...the colors are amazing and I, too, am totally addicted to Distress Inks!!

    Can I ask you...how do you mount your video camera? I see that it's in a fixed state above you but for the live of me cannot figure out how it stays there! =) Would love any tips when you have time!

    Thanks SO much for joining us at Some Odd Girl!!

  6. Thanks so much Meredith! your sweet comments always make me smile. As far as my camera goes I have it on a tri-pod which has handles, that allows it to hang down while still keeping it secure. I can send you a picture to your email if it helps better explain ( personally I'm a visual learner so) just let me know girl.

    Crafty hugs!!
