Red White and Blue Spring Card

Karen's Doodles Butterfly and Bee Spring Card

I would like to enter this

“Spring Up” Card

in the Karen’s Doodles Challenge

“Red White and Blue”

Although not technically “Patriotic” for the 4th of July,

I loved this image and couldn’t resist the color challenge.

I learned a new trick this week to “Pop” digi stamps!

I printed the butterfly twice, cut him out and pop dotted him!

Thank you to Donna Mundinger for the tip on this “trick”

I made the flowers from a tutorial Penny Duncan posted.

Although the flowers aren’t her creation, she posted the link  to the YouTube video tutorial.

I saw this style card (called a “Spring up Card”)  on Splitcoast Stampers.

I still do all my coloring in Colored Pencils, but Copics are absolutely on my wishlist…

For the butterfly’s wings, I just dabbed a little water on the paper and swirled some blue into it.

I was trying for a “swirly” look, and I think I achieved that…

After going back and looking at this post, I realize that when you click on the picture, it brings up a H-U-G-E picture!

Not sure how to fix that, but I’ll try to figure it out!

But, wow, the goofs sure show when it’s enlarged from 5 1/2″ to 8×10!  (-:

I think it looks WAY better in real life and at actual size…
