Brush Butterflies - Rubbernecker Stamps

I decided to just do something a little simple but pretty for today's inspiration. I actually meant for this card to be for something else but I went with it anyway to see where these beautiful Brush Butterflies stamp set would take me. I have had this pink one colored for the longest time just sitting in a "put me on a card" tray. I actually have a few images that are in that tray because I just have so many that I have colored. It is quite nice though that if I need something quickly I can just grab an image and go.

Since Rubbernecker Stamps is having the challenge with the theme of Best Friends I thought this would be a great card to keep you hopefully inspired and continuing to play along with the challenge. I have never really thought of using burlap on a card before until 

We had the recycling challenge last time. I tried it out and I really like the way the burlap worked out. The burlap and the butterflies with flowers really gives it that country feel, that I love. I have to admit I used to be a real city girl... but now I think I like things a little slower and things just a little more family, country... wide open spaces with nature.

I added even more texture by using the polka dot embossing folder. I also think that the polka dots give it a soft texture that blends well with the burlap.  I used the second largest Nested Scallop Rectangle die cut when going around the outside of the polka dot embossed cardstock.

I made my own little tag by just cutting the watercolor paper myself into the shape and then using Color Bursts to make the water color creation on the tag. I used my Misti to make sure I got the sentiment from the new stamp set Foxes onto the tag. I just love that sentiment. It is the best one I think ... well along with a few others. I like a lot of the Rubbernecker Sentiments.

To top it off the last bit of embellishment that I used, and completely love, is dew drops. I love these little things so much! When you need a little something but don't want to over do it, these little babies come in very handy!! I use them so much because they are just a great element.

For the butterfly wings I used just my fingernail to curl the wings to make it looks as if it had the gift of flight like a real butterfly.

The Copic Markers I used are:

  • RV10, RV13 and RV23
