The Butterfly Keeper

Good evening! Hope those of you who ordered from Crafts and Me yesterday got your stamps today! Mine arrived in the post this morning and I ummed and ahhhed for a couple of hours deciding which one to use first lol! I was most definately in a brights mood which is very unlike me, I'm more ethereal and goffik dark kinda style but having rummaged through my paper stash I kept being drawn to pink and orange - most definately not my usual colour choice but mind was convinced thats what it wanted so go with the flow :)

Ths image is one of the brand new range by Hannah Lynn only available at Crafts & Me which you'll find here and is called The Butterfly Keeper. Its my first time colouring her as she was saying colour meeeeeeeeeeeeee!
I've coloured with promarkers and added highlights with orange and pink sakura stardust pens. The orb I blended out, glittered the butterflies then sealed them inside wth 3d gloss. When completely dry I've added touches with a white sakura souffle pen.
Papers are DCWV (loud arent they lol!) whch I've distressed with scissors and also added wild honey distress ink to the base layer. Sentiment is by Stamping all day also distressed with wild honey. Butterfly I got in a swap ages ago and is made of feathers!

Hope you love the new images as much as I do, oooh faces and eyes to colour :D:D:D
