Happy Friday! Today at A Day For Daisies we are choosing one of our favorite images to showcase. It’s also a challenge and you must use something shiny. Easy…sparkly things are a girls best friend! Today I have chosen Butterfly Friends.
I am also using this weeks color palette from The Color Throwdown.
Aren’t these colors yummy! I thought they were perfect for this sweet little fairy!
I began by printing the image twice, once for the base panel image and once for coloring additional butterflies.
After coloring the entire image with Copic Markers, I colored three additional butterflies (one flew away…) cut them out and popped them up over the originals to provide some dimension. I shaded around the entire image with a Prismacolor pencil in Light Aqua and blended it with oms. I used Crystal Effects on the butterfly eyes (dots on their wings) and sprinkled on lots of ultra fine iridescent glitter…as well as using a Quickie Glue Pen to add glitter around each butterfly and the sweet little fairy. I also sponged around the image panel with Wheat chalk ink from Memento VersaMagic. It needs a sentiment or some embellishment, but nothing was hitting me at the moment. When I am ready to use the card I know I can add an appropriate sentiment.
You can see it better in this close up!
The ladies of ADFD have great projects to share today using some of their favorite images so hop on over and check them out!
