Hi folks, I'm here with another creation for the Birds and Bees theme this month. But with a twist... I've used butterflies.
On my last creation for this theme I used birds and the previous one, I used bees. So, this time I went with a more pretty version of a winged creature - butterflies. I love butterflies! I have quite a wide variety of butterfly stamps and even though I have many, I still continue to collect them, as you can never have enough!!!
Here is my creation...
I coloured a piece of white card with Distress Inks using Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio and Blueprint Sketch.
I then sprayed the inked background with water and left to dry.
I used The Artistic Stamper 3 x 3 Harlequin Mask with the same colours of ink to add some depth.
I then stamped the butterflies from the Insects and Butterflies stamp set on to white card and coloured them them with Carved Pumpkin, Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks.
I adhered the butterflies at different heights coming off the background.
I then stamped the word 'fly' using black Versafine ink then
over-stamped with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink, and lightly brushed Blueprint Sketch ink over the top. I matted the word on to Kraft Card and glued it to the bottom corner of the background.
To finish, I matted the background on to Kraft Card.
Thanks for popping by.
Toodles for now,
The stamps and stencil I have used are available on The Artistic Stamper website.
