Butterfly Essence

Purple Butterfly by An'Jenic G.
On this one I really wanted to capture the lager butterfly on this background stamp. I really like that it stood out. I colored my butterfly in with my Sharpies using the light and dark marks. I also kept this one simple. 
Colorful Word of Butterflies by An'Jenic G.
My last card I took the time to color each butterfly on this background stamp. I had so much fun coloring each butterfly and I did some fun bleeding also using my Sharpies. I add some gems, matted my  paper and went with a white base. I really like how this card turned out. And it would be perfect for an occasion. 
Okay be sure to stop by NEXT WEEK to see how we use the other stamps from this release.

This is such a gorgeous stamp and how you colour it can give a totally different feel. Your first card has a great CAS look and the second a real pop art feel.
