~Sweet Blush of Spring..
Ellen Hutson posted a card on her blog recently using parchment paper that had been stamped with white ink and then colored. The translucency of the paper g ives much the effect of frosted leaded glass when stamped. I chose to pick up the colors of the new PaperTrey Pink Patterns printed paper and colored in the Plaid Butterfly with Copic markers, much like reverse painting, on the wrong side of the paper. It gives a softer effect. The butterfly is offset mounted on the Lockhart Stamp Company image Ranunculus also colored with Copic markers. The sentiment is from PaperTrey's Garden of Life stamp set and is mounted offset on PaperTrey's new Berry Sorbet Top Notch Twill Ribbon. The embellishments on either side of the sentiment are Robin's Nest - Poinsettia glass beads also from Ellen's store.
