Happiness is....

Have you, as a child, ever caught butterflies and kept them in jars?  Or even fireflies?  TAC™ has the cutest little hostess set called Happiness Is that brings back such fun memories.  I used Lily Anna SWIC and matching cardstock for this card and a technique from the Technique Junkies called Clipped Corners.  I also used Flowers Impressability & the Wizard by Spellbinders to create the texture on the blue paper then sanded to make the flowers pop. 

I used assorted Copic markers to color after stamping using the Momento Tuxedo Black ink pad.

How do you like the jar and the little hearts? I added some bling from the Stardust Clear Gel pen on it and the butterfly.  I have a little heart punch (which is getting dull) and added some Glossy Accents for more dimension.  I have used this set in a previous post but needed this technique to send for a 1 on 1 swap though a Yahoo group and Technique Junkies.  I hope to do this technique again, it's pretty cool!

Love this - I was wondering what stamp to use on this technique - this one worked very well and love the coloring.
