Easter Card

I've been wanting to try out the butterfly that Tim Holtz demonstrated on his March tag and was finally able to locate some Antiquities Cement Embossing Powder last weekend and created one for this Easter card. This is also my first attempt at color work. This photo was taken tonight to post on Tim's blog, so sorry about the photo quality. I will take and post another photo when I can get a good day shot. 

The butterfly is such an amazing technique. I really enjoyed doing it (once I was finally able to locate the embossing powder.) I'm pretty happy with my first attempt at this technique. I'll be making more of these! 

The shaped card was cut on the Close to My Heart, Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. My friend, Mandy let me use hers this afternoon. This cart has some amazing cut images on it. 

For my color work I used Berol Prismacolor Pencils and a blending pencil. The fussy cutting around this image was a bit of work with my scissors and the inner parts with a craft knife. 

Thanks for stopping by! I treasure your comments.
