Dream Big

I've been wanting to use this stamp ever since I bought it and I finally got around to using it.  I always say I like my stamps to 'cure' before I ink them up and it's true... I've had this for close to a year but here it finally is!  The stamp is Dream Big (Webster's Itty Bitty) from Unity and all of the papers are Creative Imaginations .  It didn't take much time to colour the butterflies in with Copics and then I rubbed some Antique Linen Distress Ink around the edges and used a small distress stamp and Walnut Distress Ink for the outer edges of the oval and sentiment.  Colours used for the top butterfly are E08, E15 & YR31; the middle is E08, E25 & B93; the bottome is E35, E25 & B93.

Beautiful colours Marilyn, love the butterflies and gorgeous papers, love the design yoo....the wee animal is a mouse on my header, he is the smallest of its kind in the world....when the photo was bigger in dimension you can see how slender the plant is that he is sitting on and how tiny he is...and he does look like he is smiling....sooo cute.
