Wisteria butterfly (posted by Elaine)

I have really enjoyed working with these gorgous new stamps. Here is a card I made with the Wisteria stamps.


I repeat stamped the wisteria image along the edge of a white card panel. I used two colours of Versamagic chalk ink, using dew drop pads so I could ink different parts of the stamp at the same time. I stamped the butterfly and sentiment in purple versafine ink and coloured the butterfly in with Coloursoft pencils. Finally I shaded the panel with Dsuty Concord Distress Ink to give a cloudy effect. I matted onto purple and mauve card, adding ribbon, gems and a die cut contrasting edge to finish.

Do keep popping by to see what we have all been up to.

  2. This is gorgeous Elaine. I love the soft colouring on this, if I had to pick a favorite out of the new stamps, I think that it would be this one. But I love them all.

  7. Just stunning with that riboon layered alongside the die-cut border. I particularly like the way the ribbon picks out the green of those leaves & how you have carefully inked the buds of the flowers to open in the violet. The butterfly colouring is lovely & the way it is picked up by the base card & your outermost matting layer is so effective - the warmth of the hint of red is just there in the butterfly & you can almost feel its slightly furry texture.
