Buttons and Butterflies

Hello there!

I'm just dropping in tonight to share what I've been coloring during the 30 Day Colroing Challenge @
Day 6 
For this card I used stamps from Lawn Fawn, Sewn With Love and Happy Happy Happy. A whole lot of masking and Copic coloring!!! I stamped the images with black ink from Memento and used Copic shades E41, E43, E23, E25, C1, C3, R81, R83, R85, R43, R46, BG11 and BG15. I added some white accents with a gel pen. I cut the cemter panel with Avery Elle's Wonky Stitch die and layered the cardstock onto pattern paper from Lawn Fawn.
I am adding this card to Inkspirational Challenge

Next card, Day 7
These stamps and dies are also Lawn Fawn, Flutter By. I watercolored some cardstock with distress ink in salty ocean than used MFT scalloped stitched dies to cut the cardstock and frame.
I used memento black ink for the images than colored with Copics in shades Y13, Y15, Y17, YR21, YR04, YR07, R20, R22, R24, R27, G07, G28, W5 and W7. I added some white accents with a gel pen and scattered some clear drops from PTI.
I am adding this to The Paper Players

Thanks for stopping by for a peek!

They are both lovely cards Michelle. I love your idea of a button wreath and how you have carried a rainbow of colours through it. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

Such beautiful cards, Michelle! I love the pun in your sewing card and your beautifully coloured wreath - and your snips holding the twine is such a clever and cute idea! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week :-)
