Here is my take on this weeks sketch for Midnight Madness. This week our sponsor is Pricilla Styles, and we were lucky enough to get to use some of her gorgeous images in our creations. I got the opportunity to use this gorgeous butterfly image. Isnt it just to die for??!!! I LOVE it.
This weeks sketch was so much fun, although I am not a fan of the triangle shaped matting, it is so hard for me to cut, I struggle with it, dont know why. I am a perfectionist, so that is probably why it is hard for me, I cant get the angles exactly right, so I struggle with getting it perfect!! LOL
Ok, so for my card, I used the Mariposa paper collection from DCWV, which was just perfect with this butterfly image. I cut the background for the butterfly with my lacy circles Nestability die. The black lace, was white, and I glimmer misted it with Black Gold Glimmer mist to make it black, I then added the pink silk ribbon and bow for finishing touches. I created the sentiment on my computer, and also punched out a butterfly with my MS Monarch punch. The black mini roses are two-toned mini roses from iamroses.com
I colored my image with copic markers
R000, R20, RV02, RV00 Then I added a touch of Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical Mica powder and some stickles to the top of the coloring to give it some sparkle and shine. IRL, it is totally sparkly!!!!
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
