Butterfly Kisses

Oh my goodness....I LOVE this image!  How sweet is she?!  Butterfly Kisses from MFT was my top choice for this weeks sketch MFTWSC17 and I knew I wanted to do something special with her wings.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then stamped the wings again on vellum cardstock.  I paper pieced her wings, her tiny (!) arms on top and then her little leotard.  I wanted the wings to stand out a bit so bent them gently and then added some tiny specks of glitter to the edges. The paper is Basic Grey Oh Baby Girl Lilly.  The Open Scallop Border Die-namic from MFT was perfect and I added some TE Tiny Twinkles 'cause a girls gotta have her bling!  A prima flower with a Mulberry mini rose in the center was perfect for the flower.  When I was colouring her shoes and tights I realized the copics I had were too dark so I used the 0 copic to erase/lighten some of the colour.  That copic is a must-have!

I'm so happy with this card - it turned out exactly the way I imagined it.  Don't you love when that happens? :)
