Butterflies, Copics and Scissors... Oh, My!

So as you can probably tell from my previous posts on the subject, I am totally loving my new Copic markers! I am very new at using them, but I have been having so much fun getting to know them. Practice makes perfect, right? Because Copics bleed through paper (unless you use Gina K's Pure Luxury card stock which you can find at Gina K Designs) I have been stamping mass amounts of images on my paper (Neenah card stock which can be found at Ellen Hutson), coloring them with Copics all at once, and then cutting them out for use on cards, tags, etc.

Two days ago I purchased the clear butterfly stamp set from Martha Stewart. I am in love with this set! Here's a little look at what I've done so far...

Aren't they just so vibrant?! I'm not quite sure what I'll be using them for yet, but I know I'll find something spectacular to do with them! And because I believe in giving credit where credit is due, my method of coloring these little beauties was inspired by Jennifer McGuire who has this awesome blog you can check out at Jennifer McGuire, ink..
