Butterfly & Flowers

Hello there!!  I made this birthday card for my mother-in -law, she loves butterflies and flowers. So it's perfect to celebrate her special day.

I  stamped the flowers using the masking technique and then colored all the images with my Spectrum Noir markers, all colors used are listed on the supplies list at the bottom of the post.

I added some gold dots to the center of the flowers using a gold glitter pen.

I love this bright combination of colors, especially the butterfly.


¡Hola! Hice esta tarjeta de cumpleaños para mi suegra, ella ama las mariposas y las flores. Así que, es perfecta para celebrar su día especial.

Estampé las flores usando la técnica de enmascarado y coloreé todas las imágenes con mis marcadores Spectrum Noir. Todos los colores que he utilizado están en la lista de materiales al final de este post.

Me encanta la combinación de estos colores, especialmente los de la mariposa.

Here's a close-up...
