Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Glitter It!

I hate to post two in one day but I needed to do this to enter the Simon Says Stamp glitter challenge for tomorrow.


I created this card using the Stampin Up! "Stipple Butterfly" stamp. This was a case from a Debby Hughes card from the Clean and Simple 3 Class that ended last week. (My last butterfly card was inspired by the same card, as were the two that I will be posting for my homework tomorrow.) This is one of the OLDEST stamps I own. I never use wood stamps anymore but I never got rid of this because I LOVE butterflies. Every card I made this weekend I was thinking of my late mother. Her birthday was yesterday and I think I just had it on my mind. 



I had fun pulling out old supplies, using my "new" embossing paste, and spritzing mist spray every which way. 


I colored the butterfly in with Copic markers. I used a photo off the internet as a "model" for the coloring. Blue butterflies are my favorite!!


I then stamped a thank you from Simon Says Stamp "Thanks" set from September. I LOVE this stamp set!!



I masked the butterfly and sentiment off using the paper mask but as you can see, it wasn't 100% successful. I used a Wink of Stella glitter pen on some of the embossing paste, as well as the butterfly. It is so hard to see in the photo, though.



That is all for now. Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Nora, thanks for your kind comments on my blog.
Your Butterfly looks wonderful, like also the arrangement of the background.
