Queen Anne's Lace



Hi everyone! Earlier this week, Dawn made a card (you can see it here) with Lush Blue DP paired with black and I just loved it....so today I pulled out my papers and got to work. I used this gorgeous Northwoods image that Michelle sent me. It's called Queen Anne's Lace with Butterflies. It's stamped on watercolor paper, embossed with detail clear EP, and watercolored with a combination of a Green #249 Tombow and some SU markers. I added some Baby Blue Stickles to the Queen Anne's Lace and a tiny bit of Yellow Stickles to the yellow bud in the center. The butterfly at the bottom is doubled up on a layer of foam tape. The remembrance sentiment is from my Flourishes Sweet Violets set.

Hope you're all having a fantastic weekend!
