No inside pictures today ... I still haven't mastered the art of the digital camera. Why does that not surprise me?

This card was made using an assortment of stamps by A Stamp in the Hand with the exception of the black and orange butterfly on the front of the card. That stamp may possibly be an old PSX stamp that I have had for more years than I care to remember. The cardstock used for the background was Kromecote glossy. After stamping the flourish in brown, I stippled the CS with shades of brown dye ink. The other images were colored with big fat juicy markers from Marvy, and the butterfly on the front of the card was stamped with StazOn's Jet Black and lightly colored with an orange Copic marker.

Using a "cut and paste" technique, I cut strips of the background and adhered them to a purple card. I cut smaller images of the pen and the dragonfly and mounted them on green CS before placing them on the card.

The two butterflies faux postage stamps on the front of the card are stickers that were mounted to purple CS and then adhered to a rectangle of the stamped background which had been mounted on green CS. The butterfly faux postage stamp sticker on the back of the card was placed directly on the stamped background. I don't often use stickers, but these were appropriate for this card, which is my way of telling you that I have had them for so many years that I don't remember who makes them.

Thank you, friends and family, for reading my posts and leaving such wonderful comments. It's a beautiful spring day here, and I'm sending you hugs and best wishes for a great day!
