I used a Peddlers Pack image in the Copic book and as a thank you from the company they sent me this amazing Butterfly Background stamp. It took me 3 days to figure out how I wanted to color it and a whole bunch of hours carefully coloring. Be sure and check out the other images they offer. I have colored the cactus, dragonfly, apples and now the butterfly and love every one of them!! I have included all the links for you.
I started out by stamping this image twice. Once in Memento black and another in the cocoa. The cocoa image is the base as i wanted the lines to be subtle and the black is the butterfly. I colored the background including the butterfly in black (100) adding some image extensions with the Mulitliner pen. what is an extension? Its where i extended part of the image out where the butterfly would have been. Then I proceeded to color the remaining image. After coloring the butterfly in the W’s (on the black stamped image, I cut it out and adhered only the center of the image to to card so the wings pop.
