Don't you just love the new collection? Just fabulous!!!

And I got some new art tools so I had to try them out!!!
Here's what I did!

Butterfly on the top left hand corner
was made by embossing and stamping a peice of paper with the butterfly stamp. Coloring it in with the Gelatos and rubbing it in with my finger until the colors blended together. I wiped off any excess off of the black. Cut it out.

Butterfly on the right
was made just like the one above but instead of rubbing the color I scrapped off the top layer, misted it with water and cut it out.

Butterfly below
was made by stamping the image with waterproof ink and coloring in the image with the watercolor pencils. I misted the image and blended the colors with a Qtip.

I used the Big Brush Artist pens in blue and green to color the vines, phrase and floral stamp. I stamped the page. I cut the die cut paper into strips and placed them as in the picture. One of the strips I put through a crimper. I used an awl to scrape the photo and adhered it to the page. I placed the rub on directly on the page.
