Butterfly Wishes


Card/Paper: Perfect Plum, Bordering Blue, water colour paper for image
Ink: Old Olive, Perfect Plum, Bordering Blue, Chocolate Chip, Black ink pad
Stamps: Touch of Nature, Sincere Salutations, Canvas Background
Other: Bashful Blue brads, Ballet Blue Stampin' Pastels
Card Size: 15cm x 10.5cm


Stamped the branch image three times in black ink, using Stampamajig for accurate positioning. Coloured using an aquabrush and markers scribbled onto the Stampamajig sheet. Stamped the greeting with Perfect Plum, again using the Stampamajig. Chalked the background with Ballet Blue. Used markers to ink the butterfly stamp with Perfect Plum and Old Olive markers, and stamped onto a scrap of watercolour paper. The branch image is matted onto Perfect Plum. Stamped the background with the Canvas stamp inked with Bordering Blue, onto Bordering Blue card. Cut a strip of the same blue, and inked up the end of the branch and stamped twice with the blue, rotating 180' after the first stamping. Stuck the strip across the bottom of the background. Punched three holes with a 1/16" hole punch, and added three brads. Mounted all on to a Perfect Plum card base. The butterfly was cut out, and just the body glued on to the card. Cut a foam pad in half, and stuck one piece underneath each wing close to the body. But I didn't peel off the paper and stick the other side to the page - just used the pads to keep the wings lifted.
