Fly Away.......

I have been  wanting to join in the Impression Obsession challenges for a while now, and my friend Lynn got me going - we both did the blog hop last week.........  every day.... what great inspiration!
 I love this gorgeous stamp and thought it would be perfect for the challenge this week- that ends tomorrow- Fly Away. This image is called Garden Planter- I stamped it with Black Memento Tuxedo ink, and colored it with Copics. I wanted to use this background I made using new SU colors and a Technique Junkies technique called Acrylic Block Taping. Don't you love the little black cat peeking around the bottom of the planter?
   I made the two butterflies dimensional and added Sakura Jelly Roll pen to them to add shimmer.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there Shelly,
love this card and the little kitty peeking from behind. This is beautifully coloured and you peeked my interest with that background. Must google it to find out how to do it. Take care.

Shelly this is stunning - the colours you have used in the background are reminiscent of a brick wall, so the planter in front really sings. Love the butterflies, they are just the right size.
