Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Crafty Boots - Pink Butterfly

Good morning everyone, well I'm back today to share with you my DT creation for Crafty Boots challenge blog where the theme for this fortnight is -


as chosen by the fab Emma T.

For me, there was only one image I was going to use and that is Saturated Canary 'Butterflies', kind of an obvious choice really!

I used a 6.5 x 6.5 inch card base which I made myself then I matted and layered paper & silver mirror card. The image is coloured using Copics. The butterfly is an old punch I have.

Had to add sparkle!

I'm particularly happy with my colouring of this image.  For her dress I used RV63, 66 & 69, but to get the real depth in the folds I also added E49 which is a dark brown. Browns are really good for adding depth to pinks, reds etc.

Those of you who often ask about my colouring will perhaps be pleased to know I am going to add a tutorial page to my blog and will start to add photo based tutorials from simple basic colouring to more in depth tutorials. Obviously this will take time to prepare, but I will do my best!

Now pop over to the challenge blog and join in the fun! 
Take care Zo xx
