The stamps are from two of my favorite sets that I designed this year... Happy Place and Wonderful Marvelous. I colored the flowers with Copic markers, adding a little shadowing around the images to make them pop. Did the same thing with the happy and birthday sentiments, then matted with basic gray cardstock. The papers are from a big 12 x 12 paper pad I got for under $4 the last time I went to Michael's. I don't typically buy 12 x 12 paper any more, but the patterns were so soft and gorgeous I thought they would be great for doing some mixed-media canvases. Can't wait to try that out.
The butterflies are an old Martha Stewat punch that I punched from cream cardstock colored with Copics, then sponged around the edges and added some rhinestones and some shimmer with a Wink of Stella pen. A bit of lace trim finishes things off.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful start to the Christmas week.
