Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Anniversary Challenge B

I know I know... two cards in one day - WOW. LOL. Mainly because we have a dance competition to attend all weekend and I won't be able to be doing all this.

This challenge was revisiting an earlier challenge by Flourishes that involved cutting out items and adding dimension. This stamp has been calling to me since I bought it to try some popping up. I tried and tried to ignore it's siren song, but I couldn't. So I used this Outlines Rubber Stamp Butterfly Square. They have another stamp that is the Butterfly itself without the wings cut off in the window, but I don't have that one (note to self - get that one!) so I improvised. I cut out only part of the wings and popped that up.

It is colored with copics (Sky - B000, Grass and leaves - G02, 05, 07, E33 for the frame and V04, YR16, YG13 for the base butterfly.). On the cut out part of the wings, and body base I colored it with Spicas. I then glued only the body and bent the wings up so it looks like it is flying out at you.  I added some Jolee's crystals on the edge and then just mounted on white and then green.

Thank you for visiting, and hope to see you back soon.
