I've learned something again today. I coloured the butterflies in this image as blue with black edging, I knew I'd seen some like that but didn't know what they were called - so I looked it up and they're called Blue Morpho.
This is my second attempt at doing an easel card and I'm really pleased with how it came out. Although at the time of creating it my hubby was killing himself laughing at me as it looked like my craft boxes had exploded all over the living room - LOL!!
This beautiful image I've used from Ching-Chou Kuik is called So Long Yesterday. I've coloured her with ProMarkers in purple with blue butterflies and added a little lack polchromos to shade. Once done cut the image out to match it to the shape of the easel card, then edged it with blue ProMarker.
Here''s a close up of the image so you can see better.
I cut a panel for the bottom portion of the card and also edged this with blue ProMarker with some blue fantasy background patches to match the top image. At the left hand side of the card I've added some lace from the Ribbon Girl.
The flowers and leaves I've added are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live & Love Crafts. There also some tiny silver dragonflies and a silver butterfly beads. The resin butterfly is from Live & Love Crafts. The blue string and the for you sentiment are from Lemoncraft.
The final touch are some pearl self adhesive gems.
This was a very complicated card for me - this I need a bit of CAS now :)
