Butterfly love!!( by maria)

Hello everyone, here are some more samples with the "Honeysuckle butterfly" and the Thistle Butterfly" stamp sets.





For the first and the second card I started again with my favorite dylusions ink background and the salt technique. In the middle of the cards I stamped the big flowers. I took away the colours of the flowers with bleach, then when everything was dry I coloured the flowers with some water colour paints in the colours that I liked.  I stamped the butterflies on a paper that I had already coloured in advance with the dylusion inks. I cut them out and raised them with some 3D tape and put them in the places where they belong. I took some golden acrylic paint and with the lid of my embossing powder box I made some golden circles on both cards. I also made some accents with a white jelly pen.
The 3rd card is made with distress ink.

I hope you enjoy my samples and I hope I give you some inspiration to make your own Art!

Greetings
Maria

  9. Your bright combinations of colour made me smile today, especially the first one with your striking use of black, gold & white with the oranges & yellows. The butterflies on the second catch the eye against the green background & one can really see how the gold rings glow. In your final sample the multiple textures of greenery in the background add lovely interest & I love how your butterflies are individually coloured yet all in a yellow, orange & white combination again giving a very powerful contrast. The butterflies' wings extending beyond your matting layers adds lovely interest.
