Make it Monday, #122-Polka Dot Texture with Copics, No. 2

Hmmmm... I tried to do a butterfly, from Papertrey's "Beautiful Butterflies" for this week's polka dotted challenge, but I don't think this stamp lends itself very well to this technique, or perhaps that I need more artistic skills in colouring a butterfly! (Probably the latter.) Wouldn't it be great if PTI came out with new stamps with a design in them for these butterfly dies?!? I'd love that, as the ones that are in the set are solid.
Anyway, here is my effort. The flower is from PTI's  "Cutting Garden", and the sentiment is from one of the "Tag-It's.." series. The tag die is "Boutique Borders". It's nice that so many sentiments fit into these new tags! I used Copics to colour the butterfly, and the colourless blender to make some dots, as well as just a touch of glitter to make the wings sparkle just a little, and some Glossy Accents for the butterfly's body. The paper is all PTI, as well as the stamps.
Thanks for looking!


  1. Beautiful butterfly!! Great card!

  2. Your butterfly has a very luminous look about it. The copic dots add just the right amount of detail. Love it!

  3. Gorgeous! Love the way you stacked the blooms.

  4. I think the butterfly turned out great and I do agree with the suggestion for detailed stamps to work with this die.
