Creating for fun

Hello there, welcome to all my new followers and those of you who stick around!  I printed out a Delicious Doodles image 'Butterfly Bliss' this morning and decided I was going to just ink this one up for me, no design team requirements in mind, just the sheer joy of creating with whatever flowed and this is what I came up with.


I've been still playing around with the Starburst sprays and used some for one of the backing papers and the nesti dies.  It is watercolour paper which had been sprayed with three colours of Starburst spray.  Tibetan Poppy Teal, Batchelor Button Blue and French Lilac Violet.  Love the mix that happens when these colours overlap.  The shimmer is beautiful too.  The Wild Orchid Crafts rose has been sprayed with the blue and violet sprays and just looks amazing IRL.

The butterflies were coloured twice and then cut and layered onto the main image with foam dots. and I found a huge blue crystal for the flower centre.

Colours used.
Skin:  E000, E01, E1, R20
Eyes:  B0000, 00, 02
Hair: R000, E21, E25, E29
Dress: B24, B26
Flower & Earrings:  YR15, R17
Butterflies:  100, B0000, B00, B02, B04, B26 Baby Blue spica and Clear spica

I'm entering Butterfly Bliss into the following challenges.

    1. Hi Andrea, thank you very much for your lovely compliment. I try to get as close to natural as I can with most skin tones, unless I'm going for a fantasy skin like blue or purple!
