Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge 28

I love Clinique Bonus time, and I still can't believe I didn't get this one.  But, thanks to Lori choosing this photo as our inspiration this week, at least I have a card!

This card was really pretty easy to make.  I embossed a scrap of hot pressed watercolor paper (unlike cold-pressed, it's smooth) and then added color with Inktense pencils.  I didn't actually draw on the paper, I took color from the tips of the pencils with my wet brush and painted the colors on.  The butterfly is from Starving Artistamps, and it's colored very quickly with Copic markers.  The whole thing took me about an hour, which for me is lightening fast!

The other Divine Divas always come up with some amazing cards, so be sure to have a look at theirs too.  You can see all of their creations on their blogs: Anne, Chris, Lori, Julie, and Kerri.  And, don't forget that you're welcome to join us.  If you do, post a link on Lori's blog, and if you upload to Splitcoast Stampers or Papercraft Planet, use the keyword DDIC.

Thanks for stopping by!
