Whisper of God

So glad the weekend is here again.  I'm really looking forward to spending time with my stamps...LOL!  Sometimes I think I live for the weekend - where I can just stamp and colour and forget about the rest of the world. 

Recently, I picked up a number of Unity Phyllis Harris stamps during the Unity sale.  Of all that I purchased, this
 PH-1057A-LET-LOVE-FLY

is my favourite set "Let Love Fly".   I wonder if this girl is catching the butterflies in her net and then setting them free?  It brings back such wonderful memories of my childhood days of catching butterflies in my aunt's massive garden. 

The image is coloured with Copics:

Hair - E99, E25, E23, E21
Skin - E50, E01, E13
Dress - B41 B45, Colourless blender
Grass - G40, G43, G46
Net - E25, E21, BG0000
Butterflies - G00, BG10
Flowers - R22

Hope you like the card.  Be sure to stop by the Unity Blog and inspired by the Unity Friends with Flair ladies.

Happy Weekend!
Kary

I love these stamps as well and have been saving up to afford some. You did such a wonderful job coloring, especially the hair! I also love how you made the butterflies three dimensional. Just a beautiful card, with an even even more beautiful sentiment. Thanks so much for sharing.

Have a lovely weekend!

Beautiful PH card! Great coloring!

Your coloring, of course, is superb. Love the popped up butterfly and clouds. Thanks for the email you sent me last week! More to learn -- it's what keeps life interesting. Here's my question for this week. What kind of paper do you use when you're coloring? I've been experimenting with a few, but haven't picked a favorite.
