Passion for Promarkers - Butterfly Kisses...

Good morning, dear Blogger friends! It's Tuesday again, so today sees the start of another fab challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week it's the lovely Eileen in the chair and she has chosen the theme 'Butterfly Kisses' - so you just need to make sure there is a butterfly on your project...simple!  This week we have 2 fabulous sponsors - firstly, Letraset are offering one lucky winner a set of Flexmarkers (yes please!) and secondly Crafty Sentiments are giving away 3 digi images to another lucky winner!

Don't forget to be eligible to win the prize, you MUST use your Letraset products (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers) and of course follow the theme.
 We were lucky enought to be able to chose a digi image from Crafty Sentiments for use with this challenge and when I saw this image, I felt that she looked windswept and knew I wanted to use little butterflies to look like leaves swirling around her!...
...I decided to make a box frame (you can find the tutorial and template at the top of my blog) and decorated it with Prima Fairy Rhymes, Anna Marie and Divine Collection papers...
...The image is called Mia and I did a touch of paper piecing to give her a bit more dimension...
...I coloured her up with my Letraset family and here's the colour list I used :
Skin - Blush, Dusky, Sunkissed Pink, Coral
Hair - Cappuccino, Caramel, Cocoa, Henna
Jacket - Coral, Dusky Pink, Satin
Cuffs and toggles - Butercup, Canary, Sunflower
Tights - Honeydew, Pastel, Soft Green, Dove Grey
Boots - Red, Crimson, Burgundy

...I punched lots of little butterflies using an XCut punch in 2 different papers and attached them around Mia's feet to look like swirling leaves.  I just glued their bodies so that the wings are dimensional and added some glitter to them...
...I decorated with some WOC flowers, a Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly, some spray crystals and one of the delicious pins I got from the lovely Mandy at A Sprinkling of Glitter.  I finished with some pieces of diamante swirls, pearl trim, Stardust Stickles and MS clay corners...et voila!
I hope you can find the time to join in with our challenge this week and don't forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my wonderful teamies have been up to!  Thanks for dropping by!
