Just Because

Did you ever feel like you wanted to just send a smile? If somebody is a little down...did you just want to send them a little note to tell them you're thinking of them. That's what this week is for me...letting people know they're important...just because. I'm sharing this simple sketch that was a cinch to make. This is the Large Paisley Butterfly from The Rubber Cafe. The sentiment, Just Because, is a simple note to let somebody know you care...just because.

This beautiful butterfly was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copics. I actually used 5 different colors because I couldn't decide if I was going blue or green...in the end...I did both. BG10, BG15, BG49, YG11, and B24 were the colors used today. I added a little green in the background and a little blue for the ribbon. I thought glitter finished off the butterfly nicely and really made him pop. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share with all of you. Don't forget to send a smile and let somebody know you care...just because.
