Copic Colour Challenge 25

Good morning. It's sunny! Hippity hip hooray! The dog is happy because it means I can leave the back door open all day. My dog is like a yo-yo, in and out of the house all day, it drives me nuts when I am constantly opening and shutting the door for her - today she can come and go as she pleases.

However, back to the main purpose of the post which is this week's Copic Colour Challenge. The colours to use are YO6, B12 and RV02. For once I have all the colours and I've kept it simple and just used these three, one for each butterfly. I've covered each butterfly in Glamour Dust which as usual you can't see (unless you click on the pictures to enlarge them).

I was shown how to make this bag by Katrina from Whimsical Wishes a couple of weeks ago and love to make them - they are such fun! (see here for details - thanks Julie for the link to this tutorial).
Here's what I used to make this bag:

DP: Brenda Pinnick
Stamp: Elusive Images "Butterly Poppy" plate; sentiment Papermania "Clare Curd Signature Range"
Colouring Medium: Copic Ciaos YO6, B12 and RV02
Tools: Cropadile (for hole for ribbon), Scor-pal
Accessories: Ribbon (from QVC kit); Pearls from ebay, Glamour Dust (again!), "Heat it Up" holographic embossing powder (for sentiment).

Thank you so much for visiting me today.

Right, I'm off to hang the washing out before the sun skoots off again.

Have a great day!
