For today's project, I inked up Butterfly Net by Elisabeth Bell, isn’t she just the sweetest little lady? I used a sentiment from the Frame of Thanks set (from an earlier release) along with the matching mini picture frame die. And see those delish butterflies? Well they are from the fabulous butterfly border die. I just ran it through the die machine then chopped off butterflies as needed, inked the edges, a few little pearls and job done.
Coloured with copic markers, I used
Hair: E57, 43, 42, 51, 40, 50
Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, R20
Clothes: R22, 20, 30, 000; W3, 1, 0, 00

I used papers from the Spring Feast (First Edition) paper pad, love the vintagey colours. The doily behind the image is a Prima die.
