Spring Swing 11 by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps

Hi friends and welcome to this week's challenge (#503) on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog.  We have a wonderful theme this week:  Let It Be Spring.  Spring is my favourite season for a number of reasons, mainly because my sons celebrate their birthday in the spring.

For this challenge, I chose the gorgeous "Spring Swing 11" by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps.  I love this image!  

I drew the background and coloured this beautiful image with Copic markers and Polychromos pencils.  Then, I applied Liquid Pearls (White Opal) by Ranger to the butterfly's body.

If you would like to see more wonderful inspiration, stop by The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to see what the other Design Team members have created.  And, while you are there, why not join in the fun?  There are some lovely prizes to be won.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I hope to see you again.  In the interim, I wish you a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Materials and Tools Used 

Border:         Precious Marieke "Happy Birdhouses" die PM0148
