Blue Button Butterfly Girl

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello from Laurie with another project for the Something that Starts with B challenge.  
I made this card using the Button Girl stamp from Lost Coast Designs.
I stamped my Button Girl onto white card stock with black ink.  I gave her face some color and colored her hair brown. I used Copic Sketch markers for all the color on this card.
I then colored her butterfly wings with three shades of blue and added some a few touches of white with a Gel pen.  I colored the lettering on her dress with blue as well and added a bit of gray to darken up her boots.

I cut her out and glued on two white buttons and some lace trim to the bottom of her dress.  When I cut her out, I did not cut the "halo" she is wearing.  I decided even my pretty good fussy cutting skills were not up to that!  So once she was all finished, I stamped her head onto some blue patterned scrapbook paper, then I glued my completed girl on top so that her "halo" shows.  I dotted the circles in her halo with white Nuvo Crystal drops.  I stamped some mini flowers over the background with blue ink and dotted the centers with white.
 Finally I outlined the edges with blue marker and layered the finished piece with a piece of white card stock.

Wouldn't this be a fun card for some special little girl?
Show us what you can create that starts with the Letter B!!


  1. She looks a bit serious but I love the quirkiness of this image. Looks great with all the blues and I love how you added the buttons, lace and nuvo drops. Hugz
