Saturated Canary Butterfly Baby


Good morning! Thanks for stopping by :0) This little cutie is from my spree at Saturated Canary the other day she is called butterfly baby.

This is a special image.  Krista Smith (Saturated Canary) has drawn this image to help raise awareness and money for a disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa.  You can read more about this aweful disease affecting children  Here.

The Butterfly Fund was set up to rasie awareness and financial assistance for families of children suffering from EB.  It was a disease I have not heard of before, and was so touched with the stories of some of these families and children.

I have coloured her up with my copics, and am happy to say I am slowly accumulating a better range of colours.  I have followed the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  The sentiment is from an Amy R set called Baby Sentiments.

The papers are from Paper Inklings, an Australian business who make lovely paper, and have just started selling to the public. These two are called "Encahanting Girl" and "Mum".  I have used moonstone brads from WOC. I have put the larger brads over diamonte ribbon sliders and they look quiet striking. 


The pic below is to show the glimmer I painted on the baby's wings.  I simply dip a water brush in glimmer mist and paint it on.. that way I control exactly where the glimmer is and I dont get those annoying drops.

I would like to enter in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp: Glimmer and Sparkle
Crafts and Me: Add a sentiment to the front of your card
Sentimental Sunday: Anything goes (with a sentiment- of course!!)
Sparkles: away with the Fairies
Craft your passion: hip to be square

 Thanks for stopping by, Stay Safe XOX Tania
PS...Did you notice I have learnt how to watermark my work- thanks to the lovelies who helped me over at Southern Girls challenge.  It is just basic, and I would love if anyone could link me to those watermarks with the butterflies etc and swiry writing... but for now, this will do for now:0)
