It's Spring!

Oh I am in a card making mood today to make-up for all the days I didn't! This is Aurora with Butterfly..Isn't she delightful? When I first saw her I immediately thought of WEEEE it's springtime! Aurora was designed by Victoria Case for the Aurora Collection exclusively made for Susana's Art and Card Design.

 I had so much fun coloring her with my Copic markers! She screams "SPRING"  Don't you just love the look on her face? I sure do!!!

Aurora With Butterfly  isn't she delightful? When I first saw her, I immediately thought WEEEE it is springtime!  She screams "SPRING"  and I just love the look on her face!!!  Don't you? Aurora is from the Aurora collection designed by Victoria Case exclusively for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. The collection is 6 stamps, PLUS Silly Pilly Caterpillar for only $29.00! You cannot turn down a bargain as good as this one! 
When I colored the butterfly wings...I wanted to do something different so I took one Copic marker from each color family and made the wings like I would color a rainbow. I didn't worry about highlighting and shadowing the colors for they were perfect just the way they were! I love the way it turned out!   Diamond Glaze and Diamond Stickles were applied to the wings for sparkle! After the Diamond Glaze dried I applied the stickles with my finger so I could dazzle the entire wing in an even coat.  Butterfly stickers were adhered to card stock and cut out to add a 3D effect. Nestability Die label one was used for the cut out and of course I had to use Kasiercraft rhinestones on my corners. Copic B000  colored the background. I darken all my edges by taking an ink pad and rubbing very lightly over the edges. I do this to all the layers which helps it look more uniform. Ribbon and brads from my stash. I hope you love her as much as I do!
