Butterfly Beginnings

I had wanted to do this week's sketch on SCS, and made some time this afternoon. The images are from smARTworks End/Begin. Isn't that a great quote? I chose a couple sheets from my 6x6 pad of BasicGrey infuse, and pulled a few of those colors to finish off the butterfly. I don't think you'd find anything like that in nature, but let's just chalk that up to artistic license, shall we? :)

I stamped the butterfly onto the layers of the card itself, so the feet and antenna were all there when I layered on the colorized version (I believe I picked that tip up from Dini!) I also outlined the butterfly's wings with a black spica glitter pen, so there's just a hint of shimmer.

(Finished card measures 5 1/2" square)

Have a great weekend!!
