Loonie Stampers #30

This week's Loonie Stampers Challenge (these can be tough - I have a lot of admiration for all of you Loonies each week) was Anything Butterflies.

I stamped one of Gina K's butterflies onto vellum paper and embossed it with Bridal Tinsel. I colored with a very pale blue copic (hard to see in the pic) then gently folded up the wings. I pulled it all together with some of this origami folding paper that my daughter didn't want but I thought I could use someday. It was so springy and pretty it just caught my eye this morning. I embossed and cut out a second butterfly to give this a 3D effect. White Glitter Dots from Gina K finished off the final piece. It is for a friend but I won't mail this one.

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge
The second challenge I tried to work on was for Mojo Monday. I am new to Mojo sketches and have not yet figured out that I need to plan out my base layers/measurements BEFORE I start - LOL. I did it in reverse and created the focal point image with birds (I decided I REALLY need to try something other than flowers). Copic coloring (it was hard to get this shaded very well) - added a "tree" for the branch and bird house to hang from. Embossed with Cuttlebug "Mesh" folder which I inked up first with Lemon Tart Palette Ink. THEN I realized my main image was too big to use the way the sketch was laid out AND I forgot and put the sentiment on the focal image not down in the corner. SO - this was an experiment in how NOT to do a sketch challenge LOL. But I learned a lot in this process and stretched myself to try some more detailed copic coloring. I think I'll pass on Mojo for this week.

Enjoy! Spring is coming - it is - it is!!!
