True Beauty

A card that uses something other than a Tilda. Amazing I know. I needed to do a sympathy card and somehow I wasn't coming up with one using a Tilda. So I used one of my favorite images from the angel company. A stamp from the set called true beauty. What is more beautiful than a butterfly?


Even the paper and the big eyelets are from the angel company. I love this paper set called Angelee. Everything is colored with copics. The outside edge is colored with a Krylon 18 kt gold leafing pen. As the pen is alcohol based as are the copics I decided to put a little of the gold leaf in the background of the picture and smooth it out with the blending pen. It worked well and I got the desired effect. The butterfly is two layers but the top layer is just glued down in the middle. The top layer is covered with stickles. The words are from an old angel company stamp set called rose sentiment. The edges on the green dp was edged first in tea leaves by versamagic chalk ink and then just a hint of pesto versamagic chalk ink.

copics used
butterfly - BV23, V95, V000
flowers - E93, R11, R00
leaves - G00, G21
butterfly body - BV29

Hope you enjoy.
