Willow with Flowers

I would LOVE to have had a little more time to work on this card today, but my son called just as I started it this morning to tell me he and all the grands were coming here to spend the day with me. Yikes! That will teach me to put off things that need to be done!

I stamped Willow Kneeling Up with Onyx Black Versafine ink on watercolor paper. Then I embossed using Detail Clear embossing powder.

I stamped the image once again to make a mask. I put the mask over the stamped image, then used my stamp positioner to stamp Fall Grass .

The image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paint brush. I used my new Martha Stewart butterflies punch and Intense Yellow Prismatics cardstock to make the butterflies. I added just a touch of Tea Dye Distress Ink to give them a little more depth. The yellow gemstones on their body are from Hero Arts.

The patterned paper is Sera Sera by K & Company. The blue cardstock is Nautical Blue Prismatics medium, and the green cardstock is Intense Kiwi .

Gotta run...I hear the grands calling my name! :-)

Thanks for stopping by today!
