Sometimes my fingers get really inky, like for instance, while making this background.  But it was totally worth it because sponging is such fun, and I love the effect!!

One of the fern stems was stamped on acetate and then pressed onto the cardstock so it would bend the other way.

The solid butterfly was made by using the negative cutout of the top butterfly as a template and then fussy cutting.  By using the inside of the cutout rather than tracing around the actually butterfly, the solid/bottom piece is slightly smaller than the top.  I think it just looks better not to have any overhang of the bottom butterfly.

Yeah this is completely random, but when I was playing around with the SU Summer Sun (retired?) cardstock, I noticed that the Copic Y35 marker is a perfect match.  Just an fyi.  (Oh and the Copic is colored on PTI Select White cardstock.)
