If you haven't heard - I entered the Blend Creation Metal for Monsters contest to design a Mother's Day Monster to go on a pendant for charity. My momster is both loving and fierce!

My little momster has started a conversation about what is beautiful among some of my buddies..
What is beautiful? What makes something good - the thing itself or the person that thinks it's beautiful or good? That should get your head spinning...
A few opinions... If you see it in nature, it is both good and beautiful. If you think it's divinely given, it's good and beautiful. If it increases joy or decreases sorrow, it's good and beautiful. Even if it's a little monster. :)
But especially if it's a butterfly. I LOOOOVE it when the monarchs come to town. My walks are so colorful and sweet. So I took the God's beauty set and concentrated on increasing joy. The best way to do that is with contrast and color. My card base is basic grey, and the images of leaves and flowers are in Basic Black. The flutterby is stamped on Whisper White in Basic Black. To color it, I first colored the whole thing with a Summer Sun marker. Then I colored the edges with my Pumpkin Pie marker. Then I went farther in with Only Orange. Then I blended all that with Summer Sun again.
I cut the butterfly out and folded it in half, and attached it with a glue dot.
I stamped the butterfly in black on the card so that the antennae would show up.
After all that I made the white spots with my gel pen. Aaah, spring.
