CSS Blog Hop!


The Gina K CenterStage Spotlight Alumni are hosting a great hop with a sketch by our own Melissa Cash!

If you arrived from Joy's, you're on the right track!  If not, head to the StampTV forum to start at the beginning!

My card uses Theresa's set, Strength and Hope, which has beautiful quotes and this gorgeous Awareness butterfly, which raises awareness for all kinds of illnesses depending on the color you choose for the ribbon!

I colored mine with Copic markers, using the feathering technique to color the wings with a gradient ranging from blue to green.  Afterwards, I coated the entire piece with a quickie glue pen and some glitter for lots of sparkle!

Notes:
Copic markers
sheer organza ribbon
paper roses
jute thread
bling

From here, you're visiting Cheri!  Can't wait to see what she's created for us!

Enjoy the hop!
