Happy Thursday! I tell you, what a week! So many things happening here - positive and negative. Crafting related very positive :) But I can't tell you about that yet.
Ok, like the title already told you, today's post is about a green butterfly. I really wondered if it would look too strange, but I think I like a green butterfly. What do you think?
This is a card I'll enter to this month's Hero Arts challenge including inking techniques. I slightly inked a piece of patterned paper, stamped the background with Versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I inked it again with darker colors. Yes, the emboss resist technique - one of my very favorites! The butterfly is stamped onto patterned paper and colored with colored pencils. Green green green. Too much?
Today is St. Martin's Day here. And this evening there will be St. Martin's Singing where the children are walking with lanterns behind a man on a horse. It will be the first time for my little girl and she already practiced the song a lot. Please keep your fingers crossed that it'll stop raining, she would be so sad if it was cancelled!
Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting!
