Hands and Butterflies

Happy Wednesday!

How is the weather by you today? Here in Southern Wisconsin we are getting a nice mix of freezing rain and snow which means winter is still here. Do you think we were being teased with the nicer spring like weather we had the last couple of week? I do!

I wanted to share with you an online store that I found while surfing for the best price on copic marker. The store is called Scrapbook Pal. For those of you that like the Kokuyo Dot'n'Roller tape runner, Scrapbook Pal currently has the refills on sale for $3.50 and they have free shipping on purchases over $25.00. Here is a link to the site.

And if you are wondering where I found the best price on copic markers, it was at Carpe Diem. I got the sketch markers on sale for $3.95 a piece. Here is a link if you would like to check it out.

All right, enough of the advertising. Let's get to the card.

The card today is one I made using cs from my scrap basket. Yes, the scraps are now in a nice little basket. I had to do something with them because they were taking over my crafting table and my space to craft was getting smaller and smaller...hee hee.

The cs is Going Gray, Pure Luxury and a textured vanilla I picked up at Archiver's a while ago.
The dp is from Basic Grey's Ambrosia paper pack. The stamp is from Hand in Hand found at Gina K Designs. The size of the card is a 4 1/4 in square.

I stamped the image is a very light gray, I can not remember the exact name but it is by Mementos. The sentiment is stamped slightly over the image with Basic Gray ink. I wanted the sentiment to be darker than the image because I wanted the image to look more like a watermark behind the sentiment. What do you think? Does it look a little like a watermark? I used the rectangle nesties to cut out the image and for the gray mat.

The butterflies are from SU's Butterfly of Happiness and were stamped with versamark on gold vellum and heat embossed using Ranger's super detailed black ep.
I wanted to add a bit of orange to the color of the butterflies so I use my orange copic marker and colored the backside of the wings.
I finished up the card with SU's Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon.
Thank you for stopping by!
