Blue Butterfly


I don't see many blue butterflies in my neck of the woods, but I wish we did. It is a rare sight, and such a treasure when they do visit my garden.  I decided to pay homage to them with today's card. 



I'm trying to use up patterned paper (gonna take me a while...), and grabbed some pumpkin and white papers. Blue is a complementary color to orange on the color wheel, and what a nice bold pairing they make!  I stamped a Verve Each Day butterfly, and grabbed some blue Copic markers to create this little guy.  After trimming it, I added Ranger's Glossy Accents over the entire thing.  The photo below doesn't do it justice.


Thank you SO much for dropping by today!

Oh, that's very pretty, Colleen! I'd love to see a butterfly like that in my garden. There are so many different kinds, I'm sure there's one just like this somewhere. I've always loved blue and orange together. You've combined them beautifully in just the right balance!

So so pretty...I hear you about using up patterned papers. I have so much and with little crafting these days I have little hope of ever making a dent...it just gets older and older ha!
