DTC #71 Butterflies and/or Lace

Hi everyone and happy tuesday!

We have another fun challenge this week at digital tuesday, and our hostess this week is the super talented Sandy! We actually have two challenges for you this week,

Butterflies and/or Lace

You may use one or the other or combine them if you like to.
I have decided to combine mine, I think butterflies go so well with lace.


My image is one that my husband drew, it's available for purchase at my etsy store "Digital Stamp Oasis". I have just added the 5 for 5 deal again, so you can get 5 digis of your choice for $1 each!

I've colored it using derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil.

My designer paper is a retired doublesided one from Stampin Up. I stamped a flourish stamp in old olive on two of the corners to add some extra interest. Card stocks are from stampin up (pumpin pie), bazzill (green), and couture white 80lb (white).

I've embellished with some punched out butterflies (Martha Stewart), stickles glitter, sticky pearls, ribbon and lace. Then did some sewing with my janome sew mini.

Loved the sketch from Friday Sketchers, so I decided to use it.
My card also fits a few other challenges:
Alright then, that should be all. Hope you'll all join the fun this week. I am also the sponsor this week, and the winner gets to choose 3 images from Digital Stamp Oasis.

Have a great day,
Ellie .
