Wishful Asha - Outlawz

Hello, Happy Sunday. It's been a really busy week - so much going on. The weather has been pretty good although we did get some rain. Expect some more the early part of this week too. At least I won't have to water the plants for awhile. I did find one more caterpillar on one of my Milkweed plants today. I noticed that one plant had all its leaves eaten off, so I knew there was one somewhere and found it nibbling on another plant. Now that I have my new butterfly hutch I was able to put a couple pots of Milkweed in there and then break off the piece that he caterpillar was on and put it in one of the pots, so hopefully it will have enough to eat in there. Hoping it will survive and make it's chrysalis so I'll have another butterfly to release.

I was hoping to get this card done before this, but  I always seem to be last minute. This is for The Outlawz Progressive Freebie challenge. If you haven't played yet, come on over and join in. Each month after you sign up, you'll be sent a free digital image to use in the next month's challenge. All you have to do is use it to make a card and post it on the website. I used some of the techniques for the skin and hair that I learned at the Copic's Workshop last weekend. I still need tons of practice, but I do like how she turned out.

  • Image - Make It Crafty - Wishful Asha
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Happiest Birthday Wishes
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Orchid Opulence, Pear Pizazz, Crushed Curry

  5. Hello Margaret, Just saw your comment at another blog, and realized I'd not been visiting here in a long while! Love the story of your butterfly, and good luck with having a new one develop. Love your sweet little image, which is colored so nicely. You profited greatly from your copic class, because those facial tones are wonderful! Also love the hair...which I always find more difficult to do well. The tones of the project are so sunny and bright and the flower bouquets are lovely. Just a happy feeling card! Great copic work. TFS
