Sensational Season - CTMH March SOTM - Blog Hop

Oh My, I can hardly believe it's March already. And look at this absolutely Gorgeous Stamp Set called Sensational Season.   You're going to be blown away this month with the fabulous artwork from 58 of our very talented CTMH Consultants in this Blog Hop


 So on with the Blog Hop. If you just happened upon my blog, you can start the hop from here and when you get back here again, you know you've seen them all. However, if you'd like to start from the very beginning, you can go to Helen's Blog for this and for the entire list, just in case there would be a broken link along the way.

If you came here from Adeline's Blog, you're on the right path.

I have two cards for you today. I was planning on three, but the third isn't quite finished yet. Maybe I'll post it tomorrow.


The inspiration for this card started with a sketch from Phindy's Place

The first card is 5.5 x 5.5 amd uses the Miracle Paper Pack along with the Miracle Dimensional Elements for the Butterfly. After sponging Sky ink onto the butterfly, I coated it with Liquid Glass. I took some of my   Colonial White Waxy Flax and colored a small piece with the Sky re-inker. When dry, I ran it through a tissue several times to get the excess ink off. Then I wrapped it around my Paper Piercer a few times to curl it. Cut the small pieces and adhered them to the back with Liquid Glass.
The Hand Stitching was done with Embroidery Floss that matched the Sweet Leaf color.
Everything was colored with Copic Markers.


My second card is 5"x5" and uses the Bliss paper along with Sky Cardstock. The Butterfly is from the Trellis stamp set. I used the Grey Opaques and blue sparkles on the Butterfly.

My 3rd card is now posted here

Now hop on over to Traci's Blog and see what fabulous work she has to share with you.
