A Birthday Card For My Sister

I’ve been doing a few different things over the past few months. I’ve gotten into Art Journaling. I’ve also been working on making an envelope album. A few other things too. Unfortunately, none of them are finished.

I haven’t picked up my copics since December so it felt like starting over again. I always enjoy coloring a Saturated Canary image. I loved this image the moment I saw it. I love taking pics of butterflies so she was perfect. I’m afraid I don’t see her in the store anymore.

Catching Butterflies

One of the new things I discovered are PanPastels. I LOVE them you can get such a soft background or a dark vivid color. The background and the large butterflies are colored with them.

I cut out and popped up the top butterfly and the girl and the small butterflies on the net.

    THANKS for fluttering in with such an awesome special birthday card for me. You know how much butterflies mean to me-remind me of our dearest Mother and the resurrection. It is sitting on my fireplace and getting compliments galore. Your layout is perfect like ususal and the butterflies are soooo real. Mady of course wanted to go right out and catch some real butterflies in her net. Oh to only dream about the days when I was young, could wear short skirts, wear my hair like that and flit around without a care in the world!! Thank you so much for blessing me on my special day with such a keepsake! Still haven’t figured out how you have such a steady hand and your coloring gets more perfect every time you design a card! The orange shirt is perfect with the bluejean skirt. INCREDIBLE SIS!

  6. Gorgeous card Myrna! Love this image too and your coloring is lovely as ever even though you haven’t picked up your copics in awhile. Love the coloring technique you used on your butterflies. Beautiful job and I bet your sister loved it! hugs, Angela
