Lollipop Crafts Challenge 31-Use Butterflies

Hello everyone! I’m back with another card for the Lollipop Crafts blog. I am really having a lot of fun working with these images! Today my digital image is from Robyn’s Fetish and it is called Daisy Days. Her designs are so dang cute and so much fun to color. The challenge was to use butterflies. We would sure love to have you play along with us, you might even win a prize!

I printed my image on White Daisy card stock and colored it with Copic markers. I did a bit of paper piecing on this one, using a floral patterned paper by October Afternoon. I added some grass with my Copics to ground my little darling and then I lightly sponged on a little Memento New Sprout ink. I also sponged on a bit of Summer Sky around the top portion of the focal image and inked the edges in Cantaloupe. I used a Fiskars “Whimsy” texture plate to add some fun butterflies to the Summer Sunrise card stock. I just ran it thru the Cuttlebug. I also used the adorable bitty butterfly from my Spring Baskets set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. LOVE that little guy! I stamped them onto Sweet Corn card stock and they were given a sprinkle of Lemon Drop glitter. The sweet little cloud was cut with a small cloud die and I inked the edges with Memento Summer Sky then stamped the “Hi!” with Pure Poppy ink. I used a few Spica glitter pens on the flowers and leaves to give them a subtle sparkle. A Stampin Up! border punch was used to create the edge for the bottom of the card. I made a bow using the Bow Easy and topped it off with a cute little red button.
