Christie Angel

Happy Thursday everyone! I am sharing another fun image from Robyn’s Fetish. She is the sponsor this week at Lollipop Crafts blog. I hope you’ve played along with this week’s challenge, which was to use butterflies on your project. Don’t forget each week brings a new challenge and if you join us, you might just win a prize!

My card today features the adorable Christie Angel.

I printed her onto Copic Blending card stock and colored her with Copic markers. I have to say, I’d been hearing a lot of buzz about the X-Press It Copic Blending Card and finally decided to try some. I really like it! The Copics glide over it very nicely and it does make blending a lot easier. Okay, back to the card. The blue/green portion of her outfit was colored with a Juniper inkpad and a Dove Blender pen. Christie Angel has a dusting of Dazzling Diamonds on her wings and her hair bow gets its sparkle from a Sakura glitter pen. That gorgeous background paper is called Butterfly Kisses and it’s from Graphic 45. The coordinating stripe is actually the backside of the butterfly paper. LOVE that! I punched a few butterflies with a Martha Stewart punch and gave them a good sprinkling of glitter too. I added some ribbon and a sassy three loop bow, made with the Bow Easy of course and I topped that off with a bitty button from BasicGrey’s Porcelain collection. Simple card, but it took me FOREVAH to create it! LOL!! Some days it just works out like that.

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate the visit! I hope your Thursday is AWESOME!

Such a pretty card, Barb. I hear you on some cards taking a long time to finish up, but this one sure was worth the time and effort. Great job!

Never heard of that cardstock you mentioned, but then, I don't follow the Copic talk that much. I'm glad you like it.

Hope you have a happy day.
