The a2z challenge for this month is "color it", so I did a card using my copics which have been quite neglected lately. This is the same technique as I used in my card here only this time I used new Hero Arts stamps from the 2015 release. I originally saw this technique on Amber's blog - she calls it an "inside out card".
The leaves were stamped with the new HA Stamp Your Own Plant in Forever Green shadow ink. I just put a piece of paper under the die cut part so I wouldn't get ink on the inside of the card. The "hello" is from the new Hero Arts Stamp & Cut Hello.

I lightly outlined in pencil on the inside where the butterfly would be and then stamped more leaves and the "thinking of you" sentiment (also from the Stamp & Cut Hello).
Lastly I glued the butterfly in place on the inside and added the clear gemstones on the butterfly and the front of the card.
Enter the a2z challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate during the whole month of March - maybe win some of those Hero Arts new "must haves"!!
