The vast majority of my colouring is done with Copic markers, I’ve played with coloured pencils a few times (though I have to be in a particularly patient mood as those take forever to do), and then there are the occasional ones where coloured stamping takes centre stage.
Apparently I made no notes whatsoever when I made this piece, or if I did they were overlooked when I was transferring them to the computer and are now lost in the depths of an old notepad.
So, what did I use? The main butterflies were created using a stamping positioner, applying patches of colour to the stamp using Distress Oxide ink pads, stamping, and repeating. Then they were softly outlined with charcoal, with a finer black outline added with a brush and ink.
Rather than add a sentiment, I kept it simple and just mounted it onto a plain white card base.
