Another card done with my "Butterfly Bunny" stamp & my Copic coloring tutorial link

Hello everyone!
Along with every stamp release of one of my illustrations, comes a coloring tutorial by me, that is posted on Clearly iStamp blog. I LOVE sharing what little I know about coloring with you all! ;)
Anywho..... here are a couple of shots of the card I used the coloring tutorial image on. I left it simple to show off the image. The beautiful papers are from The Paper Temptress, another company I design for.
By the way, my followers will recieve a 15% discount @ The Paper Temptress if you use code:  ts15!

Remember to click on the pictures if you would like a closer look.
I would love it if you left a comment on the card here before you head on over to the tutorial.
Please be a sweetie and leave a comment there if you like the tutorial also. Shoot, you can leave one if you don't too. A little constructive criticism never hurts anyone!

Thanks so much for dropping by!

True :D
