Claudia’s Butterflies

Little Miss Muffet Stamps is sponsoring the Forever Friends Blog Challenge today and I wanted to join in on the fun!  The challenge is to use lots of flowers and you can check out all the details HERE.  But before you leave, check out what I made for inspiration…

My project uses Claudia’s Butterflies from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, drawn by Pollycraft, and also the sentiment from Make it Crafty called Just Wanted to Say Sentiment.  I colored Claudia by first dotting the darker brown and worked my way up to the lighter colors using dots.  With so many dots, by time I get to the lightest color everything before that tends to blend in and creates this fuzzy texture in the coloring.  For this bear, I used my Copic marker range E40 through E49.

For coloring, since Claudia was going to be done in browns I wanted to do something different with the wood log.  So I tried to color a birch type tree.  I remember these from my hometown area and would love to go back there someday to see them again.  They’re such a unique tree compared to the forestry around me now.

So whether you project has lots of flowers on the image or added to your card, or both, you can head on over to the Forever Friends Challenge Blog and show it off!  Plus you’ll have a chance to win some LMMS digital stamps!  😀  Thanks for dropping by and I hope you had a wonderful weekend -cheers.  😀

  1. Your birch log looks fantastic. I'd never thought to do fur by colouring with dots darkest to lightest, I must try it that way. Anyhow, the whole card is fab, love it. X

  2. Barbara, this is soooo adorable! Love the way you colored the bear! Love the birch log, too–it looks very realistic and really pops! Another great design, with such cool papers and pretty embellies! :^)Hugs, Penny
