Butterfly

When I saw April 2016 Stamp of the Month at From the Heart Stamps, I knew I would use the butterfly for a card. It reminded me of the one I cross stitched for my mom.



I colored the image with Distress Ink (Seedless Preserves) and glitter gel pens. Then I masked an oval around the butterfly and did the stripes, again with DI. I wanted the card to be a single layer at first, but then I changed my mind and used a design paper with matching color from my stash (Folia, Motivpapier Potpourri).

Monkey

Since I participated last month in Gerda Steiner Designs's March Challenge, I received this digistamp to play along in April.



My idea was to get the monkey down from the tree he was hanging on and give him some balloons. This would make a great birthday card for a friend.
I colored this little guy with Copics (E00, E21, E11), colored pencils and with a little touch of glitter gel pens. I fussy cut him out, leaving a white border around. I stamped three balloons with Distress Inks (Fired Brick, Mowed Lawn, Seedless Preserves, balloons are from Simon Says Stamp's Big Birthday Wishes stamp set) and fussy cut them too.
For the background I went with brush stripes (Distress Ink Salty Ocean) on watercolor paper (Hahnem├╝hle D'Aqua). I adhered all the elements on the card, drew the balloons lines with grey glitter gel pen and added Glossy Accents.
