CC205 Butterfly Peek

I'm feeling a little better. I think the flu is mostly gone but the bronchitus is going to linger a while as bronchitus usually does.

Today I get to share a sneak peak of a new set coming from Treehouse Stamps on Friday at 12:01 am called Butterfly Kisses. I'm also trying out my new Nesties Label 1 also from Treehouse Stamps.

I usually stay away from color challenges as 3 colors are just not enough for me but I was trying to keep things simple and easy today so 3 colors suddenly looks pretty good to me! The little flowers in the grass were stamped with Virsamark and then embossed with clear detail embossing powder and a heat gun before the Kiwi ink was added. The pink sky is just sponged. Whenever I stamp a silhouette like this butterfly, I like to add a little black fine marker on the left side and a little white gel pen on the right to make him appear to pop off the page a bit.
