DS sent me some gorgeous handmade paper from a studio in the town where he is living in Japan. There is a paper festival each year and he thought that it would be a nice BD gift. :)
Stamped the Flourishes image in black and colored with Copics. The paper is like a very dense mulberry paper and the copics tended to bleed a bit more than I am used to and not all of the fibers take color...but it was a lot of fun playing! Matted with Bazzill textured CS and Bashful Blue. Ran copper paper through the CB EF and adhered the image. Paper pierced the butterfly trails, punched the butterflies and applied. Punched a MS eyelet border and added below the image. Tied a blue bow around all. Mounted on a Bashful card, stamped the sentiment in Marina punched and pierced some more trails. Added the tiny butterflies and placed on the card. Added the pearls and done.
Thanks so much for looking. Have a peaceful day.
