Clearly Digi Stamps August New Release - Butterfly and Flowers

Today at Clearly Digi Stamps, you can find all of the latest newly released stamp sets and artwork using them.  You can see everyone's art at our blog, Clearly iStamp. I made two cards using Butterfly and Flowers. The first one has an image with a great sentiment that can benefit anyone. I kept my card simple so that I wouldn't detract from the sentiment of this pre-colored image. I colored three butterflies from this set to look like the earliest ones I see on our farm in the spring.  I rolled a glue dot to attach them under the body, leaving the wings free to "flutter."

Images/Sentiment - CDS Butterfly and Flowers
Copic Markers - Y11, Y13, Y21, YR31
Papers - CTMH Crème Brulee, Cocoa and white cardstock, Roxy patterned paper
Accents - Buttercup organdy, Sakura Gelly Roll glitter pen
Tools - printer; Adobe Photoshop
Technique - traced leaf flourishes with glitter pen. In Adobe Photoshop I did Adjustments/ Hue/ changed blue hue all the way to the right to make it green.
Here is the second card I made with this set of images. I used the outline images, not the pre-colored ones.


I printed two flowers, colored one and attached to the card. I only colored the central part of the image to cut out and pop dot on the first flower.
Digital Images and Sentiment - Butterfly and Flowers
Copic Markers - R81, R83, R85, R89, Y15, YG11, YG3, G24
Papers - CTMH Buttercup, White Daisy, and Hollyhock CS, Claire and Chantilly DP, unknown green polka dot dp
Accents - Baby Pink gingham ribbon
Tools - printer, Sizzix embossing folder
