Butterfly Kisses and Springtime Wishes

A new challenge starts today at Lacy Sunshine.  The new theme is Butterfly Kisses and Springtime Wishes and I've recycled a gift bag.  The DT is using stamps from the adorable Flower Pot Pretties and I've chosen Tina Tulips, one of the first flowers of Spring.  She also just happens to be the Loyalty Program digi for thhis week, so if you used a Lacy Sunshine Stamp in the last challenge, you can email Audrey for free (see BLOG) or purchase her at a 50% discount for the duration of this challenge HERE.

Tina is colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils.  I've been trying to take more time and add more depth and shadows to my coloring.  I hope it shows. LOL  She's fussy cut and popped and I've added a bit of reindeer moss to the bottom of the pot.

We also have a new Lacy Sunshine recipe cards that we'll be filling out for each projects listing our supplies and the colors we've used.  Hope you find that helpful.  Feel free to enlarge the card and copy and print it if you wish.

Here's the dimensional shot.  The DP I've used is from the DCWV Mariposa Stack.  I've fussy cut just around the wings of butterfly on the DP and bent them up to show the mat underneath and added additional butterflies fussy cut from one of the other papers in the stack.  I've also added die cuts on opposing corners from a Tim Holtz die and the For You sentiment from Die-versions.  Be sure to visit the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog  for fabulous inspiration from the team.  Can't wait to see what you create. 

I'm entering this in the 613 Avenue Create ATG challenge,  Sentimental Sundays Springtime flowers (plus sentiment-For You), the Corrosive Challenge Hop into Spring, the Outlawz Friday Coloring Challenge ATG, Di's Digi Designs Spring is Here, QKR Stampede Add a Sentiment, Aud Sentiments ATG + Sentiment, Crafting with an Attitude ATG, Simon Says Wednesday ATG and  Graph'It Markers Springtime.
