September 16, 2014 Butterfly Sympathy

AMuse script stamp, SU Grunge stamp,  Sizzix combo stamp/die butterflies, Spellbinders die edge, coloring with Gelatos

I have seen this on a blog Darlene Designs  and simply loved it.  She has some great tutorials on her blog and some cute ideas. I had gotten gelatos a while back, a gift from my son, so thought I would play and I felt like i was a first grader fingerpainting - so much fun and love the look.  Love the butterflies - they were a stamp/die combo set (which also comes with some beautiful flowers) from a bestie for my birthday.  I used a Faber Castell Big Brush pen and darkened the center of the butterflies a bit - again you can mix, shade with your finger tip.  love the Grunge stamp set from SU - just added that little extra.  Although you can't see it in my picture the gelato has a shimmer/shine which IRL really sparkles.  This card is for the family of my chemo buddy that recently passed away, always sad when you loose a buddy that you have been a part of their life but the family said she was always happy when she got Angel Mail.  Challenges:

Aww, this is gorgeous! Love the scribbles and the contrast of the blue on the white CS...That butterfly is a beauty! So glad you joined us at Word Art Wednesday and hope you'll come back again. Leaving you with God's Word in Psalm 147:11 which tells us, "The LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love." Have a blessed week.

Great job with the gelatos! I love mine and even painted a 5 x 7 picture using them. I'll get around to posting it on my blog soon!
