Butterfly release and copic winners!

Ah butterflies...the beauty, the incredible spectrum of colors...who can resist?
Today is release day at CHF for the very first SET in the Saturday Evening Post line. They are called Vintage Butterflies.

I have not had nearly enough time to play with these so expect to see a lot of them fluttering about on my blog in the next while. So many sizes, shapes and sentiments too!

We are moving today and tomorrow and as you can well imagine packing up a house that we have lived in for 10 years was a little daunting when we first began packing. Now that we are near the end I can see some light at the end of the tunnel. My studio will be some of the FIRST boxes that get unpacked! So that is what has been "up with me" for the last month or so....trying to get ready to move....

A couple of details on this card I wanted to point out. First of you know that I buy 99% of my embellishments in white and clear? I color most things with my copics, if they can't be colored directly with my marker I can usually color it with the airbrush system. This save me from having TONS of bottles kicking around in different colors that I never use. The doodlebug frills on this card have been colored in black and pale lavender.

Here is a shot of the copics that I used to color this graceful butterfly. I used the feathering technique to blend these colors. I worked the purple from one side and the green from the other and they flowed together seamlessly in the middle. If you click on the photo you can get a closer look.
