Enchanting Butterflies by The Paper Shelter for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends on the 4th of April, 2021

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for the fourth challenge of 2021 for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.

Here is my card:

The sponsor for this challenge is:
We were given the digital stamp Enchanting Butterflies from The Paper Shelter which I have digitally printed on to X-Press It Blending Card. I have cut the image with my paper cutter, followed by colouring with the following Copics:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
  • lips - RV14, RV19
  • hair - BG000, BG45, BG49, BV13, BV17, BV08, RV10, RV04, RV66, RV09
  • dress - RV14, RV17, RV19
  • butterflies yellow - Y11, Y15, Y17
  • butterflies purple - V12, V15, V17
  • butterflies blue - B12, B14, B16
  • flowers yellow - Y11, Y17
  • background - V000, V01
  • outline - RV19
I have added glitter pen to the butterfly trails and adhered the coloured image on to a square white card from Envelope Solutions, then added rhinestones coloured with BG49 and RV19.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her fantastic monthly classes.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:
