Spring Break is officially over and my kids are back to school today ~ I love having them home all day and sure will miss them! It is also time for this month's release at Claudia & Company. Today we have two new images to show you by John Grutta.
I colored this image with copics and added some stickles to the flowers. The dew drops were also colored with a copic to match the papers.
I think this one might be a first for me....I started coloring the butterfly and like how it was highlighted against the black and white so I didn't color the leaves ~ I don't think I've ever not colored an entire image before. I colored the butterfly with copics and then colored over it with a Spica clear pen for some subtle shimmer. To border the image panel I used a Copic multilner to trace along the inside of the nestie. The papers are from the Lily Bee This & That collection. I added a satin ribbon and a trio of brads to finish it off. I also followed the sketch over at Papertake.
