Ready for Spring!




Welcome to Tuesday! And my second post for the week. I am off to a good start for the last week of January. I hope I can stay this productive for the rest of the week. But, unfortunately, it’s my turn to buy groceries. Ugh! But he’s cookin’! No complaints really, I NEED to get out of the house! (NO, it does not take me a week to buy groceries. LOL It takes me a little while to get back into the creative mode. I would much rather be in my studio. Wouldn't you?)

Priscilla Styles Design Team "B" designed several scrumptious treats for your eyes using Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #88  Check my side bar for Priscilla’s Design Team Members and leave them some love. Here’s the sketchs. You can make it plain or fancy. I think I chose fancy ‘cause of the pearls and Stickels.
My project is with one of my favorite digis from Priscilla Styles Store.  The image I used is from the set Butterflies.  The set includes three butterflies, 2 of them are with the wings up. Go check them out. You will be able to do wonders with these beauties.
My recipe is:
Copics: R81, 83, 85, 39; E71, 47; W6; and blender pen
Inks: Distress
Cardstock: SU 80# and Cryogen 80#
Designer Paper: Basic Grey, Sultry collection
Embellishments: Green pearls; Stickles in Star Dust and Pumice Stone
Other challenges that I entered are:
Flutter by Wednesday #138 – anything goes, but must be butterfly, angel, or fairy

Thanks so much for stopping by again! I really do appreciate it! If you have any questions, please contact me.

Have a great week!
Aletha

WOW Althea, I think this is the prettiest version I've seen of Priscilla's butterfly! Totally stunning coloring on it and your color choice is gorgeous! Love how the pink on the wings picks up the pink dp and the green gems are such a pretty addition! Beautiful work.
