A Surfeit of Butterflies

IMG_0433a

 

Morning all, After a fantastic Day with my dear GS Charlie I came home and realised I hasn’t made my DT card for the Just Magnolia & hAnglar & stAnglar Challenge Blog which this week is hosted by the very lovely Pops.  Pops has chosen as her theme Butterflies just perfect for me.  We have been sponsored by The Ribbon Girl and Quixotic paperie this week.

I did go a bit overboard with the butterflies, but just had to use the Magnolia Backing Paper.  Love this little Tilda and the Dog Rose stamp also by Magnolia has been laying at the bottom of my Magnolia  Accessories box for ages, thought it was time I let it see the light of day again.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtzs Adage Pad.  I used a mixture of ProMarkers and Copics to colour Tilda, I just couldn’t get the right green with Copics.

Colour's used on Tilda:

Dress and Boots: Grey Green, Soft Green, Tea Green PROMARKERS

Apron: R22, R21, R01, R00

Flesh: E02, E01, E00, E000

Hair: E70, E42, E40

Now I have a little bit of ProMarker News for you, this week I received a little package from Letraset  which contained what I thought was spare lids!!!,  but they were much more than spare lids it is a new product that can be used to enhance our ProMarkers and make them even more versatile.  Here it is

A very fine nib that just clicks over the bullet nib of your promarker as shown , here is a close up picture of the nib in place.

I used it on the little tiny Butterfly on todays image, it was perfect, I thought it might be a bit scratchy but the ink flowed really well and got into those small areas of the butterfly with out any bleeding, well done Letraset I know these are going to be a boon to us.
