It's Create Along With Us time at PTI,
and I chose this beauty by Melissa Phillips
She perfectly showcased the new butterflies, by
watercoloring them onto a Tagsale #5.
Here's my card
I used the gem stamp from You're a Gem,
rock and rolling the stamp in colors that I found in her inspiration photo, here:
Used the same swirl stamp from Fancy Flourishes on my tag,
and Background Basics: Needlepoint on the background piece.
My bow is hand dyed with copics. You just put a few drops of
color into a baggie, add some water, and the seam binding,
and it dyes the color you want.
My gems sort of lost their definition when I added the glossy accents.
You have to look closely to see the facets!
I think butterflies or a solid flower would have been a better choice,
and I could have added the stitching Melissa did on her card.
