Extraordinary Woman

I have always drooled over this stamp in Kim P.'s collection so I went on a hunt for it and found one on E-bay! Thankfully, this item had a 'Buy Now' option, so that's exactly what I did - my first E-bay purchase!!! She is just soooo elegant and since I love all things Asian, she couldn't be more perfect.

I tried several ideas for paper piecing the butterflies but the colors were just way to vivid on my first tries. I ended up choosing the same paper as the script background for the butterflies and then altered them with various colored pencils until they blended with the robe.

Asian lady: Limited Edition
Sentiment: Anna Griffin
Script paper: K & Company
Robe paper: Basic Grey
Background paper: My Mind's Eye
