Uplifting Occassion

Well today's SKETCH CHALLENGE called for a large image so I immediately went for my Penny Black stamps of which I only have 2 but have a hard time using because they are so large. I also used Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Elegant Teal Olives. I love this image and was happy to be able to use it today. I did paper piercing and then faux stitching using my eggplant marker. I also punched out 1 eggplant and 1 teal butterfly with my Martha Stewart punch glued in the center and folded the wings up. I applied stickles around the butterfly and on the butterflies on the image. The image was colored mostly with Prismacolor Pencils then blended w/gamsol. I did use the marker for the tiny circles in the lace. Hope ya like it.
