{PIN}spirational Challenge # 42

Hello Friends:

Welcome back to my blog if you are returning, I appreciate your visit!  If you are new to my blog, thank you for stopping by to check it out! 

I have three posts for today, so please be sure to scroll up and see the other two for today.  Today we have a heart themed picture at {PIN}spirational Challenges.  Check it out!

Our sponsors this week:

I had something completely different in mind when I looked at the inspiration picture.  But what I find is that when I sit down at my desk to pull a creation together, it never quite ends up as I imagined.   I have used the Butterfly Collage digi image kindly provided by Gingerloft for this card today.  I have wanted for some time to create a side step card, so I thought why not on this one?  I have colored the image with my copics and then added some extra perfect pearls and pop microbeads to the butterflies. 

Copics used:
Letter:  W00, W2, 0
Butterflies:  R00, R20, 0
Leaves:  YG93, YG95, 0

For the background of the card, I used white cardstock.  I added some Tim Holtz distress ink in dusty concord, spun sugar and victorian velvet to create my base.  Then I stamped a Paisley Background image in pumice stone distress ink.  I was still not 100% happy, so I added some hearts by Stampers Anonymous, Urban Chic, in victorian velvet ink.  I have added some extra decoration with the pearls, doily and trim. 

We would love it if you would come and join us this week at {PIN}spirational Challenges.  With Valentine’s Day being only a few weeks away, there are so many projects that could be inspired by this picture.
Thank you for stopping by!  I can’t wait to see what you create!
Blessings until next time…
