fly away

Hello friends!  I hope your week is starting off well. Summer is in full swing here..we have family coming in this weekend to spend a week with us and next week will be filled with lots of beach time.

This card was created for Impression Obsession’s Fly Away challenge – details shown HERE.

This clean and simple card uses three images from IO’s clear set #CL112 called Flowers.  It has several wonderful floral and leaf images.  I used one to make the butterfly!

First I stamped the two flower images on white cardstock and lightly colored with copic markers.  To make the butterfly, I stamped the image on a scrap piece of paper, colored it in and then cut it out.  By turning the image on its side I created a side view of the butterfly wings.   Here’s a look.

All I had to do was draw the body in with a black pen and I was good to go!  The sentiment was handwritten on a scrap of Basic Grey paper.  I think it’s nice to handwrite sometimes instead of using a stamped sentiment.

The base card was embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by today!
