Our sketch challenge this month over at ILWS is this:
Now my All a Flutter butterfly has been underused but I decided it wasn't large enough to fill the space on its own and so added another element:
Stamp sets: All a Flutter, Bloomin' with Beauty
Cardstock: Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, Melon Mambo, SU Markers, Stampin' Pastels
DSP: Bashful Blue Patterns
Other: Crystal Effects, Blender Pen
I stamped the butterfly with Black Stazon onto Whisper White card. As we don't yet have the Melon Mambo marker, I squeezed my Melon Mambo inkpad together and picked up ink from the lid on a Blender Pen to colour my butterfly. After cutting out and shaping the butterfly I added Crystal Effects over the top. Next, using the stamp-a-ma-jig for positioning, I stamped just the hydrangea head from the Bloomin' with Beauty stamp onto the corner of a Whisper White mat using Black Stazon. The flowers were coloured with Bashful Blue marker and a hint of Tempting Turquoise in the centres and shaded areas. I dusted Bashful Blue chalk around the empty spaces to take the edge off the white. The DSP and flower image were matted and layered and the butterfly popped up on a sliver of dimensional to finish.
Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to leave me a comment and let me know if you have any underused stamp sets.
