Emma & the Butterfly

Announcing Emma & the Butterfly digital stamp :) At the STORE.

This is a little older more lady-like Emma. She is growing up too fast before my eyes! She still has the same free spirit and looks ready to twirl or make a get-away just like the butterfly she is admiring LOL!

Card Details:
Emma and the flower/leaves are coloured with pencils and OMS ( actually Emma is coloured with Goo Gone. It has a lemony smell that reminds you to colour in a ventilated place! LOL - yes OMS has nasty fumes... you just can't smell them ;) ). I was miserly and made the blue matte by cutting white CS to size and colouring the edges with the same denim blue pencil I used on the dress sash and blended with Goo Gone, I love the effect. Another miserly trick is that I took the cuttings made from trimming my bow and tucked them behind my flower ;) The background was made by doodling with pastel pencils ( blue, green, yellow) all over white paper then gently smudging with a tissue but trying not to blend the colours together.

Have a great day!

She is beautiful! I am new and have a question. Is goo gone the same as the OMS or did you just do the dress with Goo Gone? If so, what id the difference? Thanks for your help.

sheabella, GooGone is a solvent you can buy in most hardware stores for removing gunk/grease/sticky stuff... it's awesome!, it works completely the same as OMS and is pretty cheap too. I keep some in a baby food jar with a sponge in the bottom.
