Butterflies Make Me Smile

Especially polka dotted, striped butterflies. How cute is this stamp? It's another one I pulled out of my stash of pre-stamped images received from other stampers. It's so fun getting a chance to finally use some of those. I colored with Copic markers and used yesterday's sketch challenge from Splitcoast. I didn't have purple thread, so colored some with a Copic marker. Dang, those things have so many uses. I also colored the purple and green primas to match. The designer paper edges were roughed up with a hobby blade. I hope you find a reason to smile today too! HUGS! Stamps- Butterfly, Polka Dot (Lockhart Stamp Company), Thoughtful Florals (Verve Stamps)
Paper- white, SU! pale plum, perfect plum, saffron, old olive, Haiku
Ink- onyx black (VersaFine)
Accessories- copic markers (G21, YG63, V09, V15, Y21, 0), black diamond stickles, thread, sewing machine, primas, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, dimensionals
