Very "SPRING" card! :-)

I received this Penny Black stamp from Kathy R. earlier this week (thank you, Kathy! ), and had been wanting to use this CHEERFUL stamp, coloring being inspired by her enclosed card! Her coloring is always vibrant & beautiful, and the card has a big butterfly on it, in Green. Since this stamp has a big butterfly, I wanted to color Vibrant like hers in different colors~Yellow. I made it in Yellow & WHITE because I saw the Tuesday Trigger challenge at Moxi Fav. (the pic. below my card). This pic. inspired me with these two colors & SPRING-like card. I'm also submitting this to Penny Black at Allsorts challenge since this month's challenge is "Welcome Spring", a card with Penny Black stamp, and to SCS for "Spotted Canary Spring Challenge". I didn't ink the hearts of this stamp so it would look more SPRING, to me! :-) I colored the image with Le Plume pens in different shades, like Kathy R. did, on her Gorgeous cards! (she uses tombo pens.) They both don't blend, like Copics but it's ok. I got more vibrant color effect (at least, in person! lol!). It's hart to tell from the pic. but I used glossy accent for those dots on the wings & the bottom tip of the wing. I used sakura clear glaze pen for lines of the wings, its' antenas, and the brown body. I did cut one larger wing image, and attached with dimentional foam on the top, but adhered the oppsite side with regular glue (no dimention) to the body. Since the wing is large enough, it doesn't show the gap of the height. I used the impressabilities on the background white CS. The sentiment and the main image were attached with dimentional foams. It's March. I WANT SPRING! :-)
