I started by stamping the butterflies on white cardstock and coloring with Copic markers before fussy cutting them. I next stamped them on a white panel, just where I wanted them and sponged with a layer of tumbled glass distress ink. Next I went over this with the dot fade stencil and broken china distress ink. I love how this bit of blue sky looks against all the white. I popped the cut-out butterflies up over the stamped butterflies, then added the Blue Skies sentiment in the corner.
I wanted a little interest up top, like she has in the branch on the inspiration card. So I pulled out the Partly Cloudy Die Set and cut a sun, coloring it with Copic markers, and then sponging with Scattered Straw before adhering it to the corner and trimming off the excess. A thin black mat set things off and this card was done lickety split!
