I recently took advantage of a fabulous sale over at Sweet Pea stamps and picked up some stunning stamps.  I've been colouring up some of the images and here is the first of them.

Ching-Chou Kuik's Radiant Butterfly, I've followed the colours fairly closely to what is pictured on the image for this one.  Love the way it turned out.  Sorry this pic was taken at stupid o'clock this morning under artificial light and her skin is really not that yellow!  It's raining here, still, I'll try another pic once daylight arrives!

Update:  Much better pic taken in a dull gray rainy daylight but it's better than the last photo!

This Photo below is still very yellow, but I wanted to try to show the spica sparkle on this image, she's pretty much covered in it!  I've added the copic colours used as well.

I've just finished a copic class with Mandi-Lee at Copic Me and I've learnt quite a lot that I had either forgot from my first lesson or wasn't covered.  Either way, it was the best investment of my time and a few dollars.

I am entering this card into the following challenges.
