Surrender Dorothy

Good Morning all, Surrender Dorothy?  LOL, one of the things that happens when I am working with a new medium or process, right now for me it is the tabletop chalkboards, it stimulates my inspiration and all I want to do is draw, I will usually stifel the urge unless I have a lot of time or it suits my purpose.  Surrender Dorothy is my muse calling me to the drawing board.  I wanted a butterfly and a dragonfly for my tabletop chalkboards and I wanted them to be my creation, so I spent 2 or 3 days coming up with something I could attach to one of the corners, after doing my line drawing I printed them out in black and white, cut them with the Cameo and then worked with the magic Copics.  These are the butterflies, the background on the card is one of my Gelli pulls printed out on tissue paper and added to a block for the card blank.  I did two sizes, the smaller one being the blue and the larger one in greens and rusts. The tag was a bonus as I was doodling.  Sometime getting so caught up in the mechanics of getting a project done, I forget what a release drawing and the working with color are, sort of cleans the pallet so you can get on with things.

this is the larger one.

and the dragonfly, so now I have jewelry for my tabletop chalkboards and my muse is sated for a while. Have a great week, hugs
