Honeysuckle Hues (posted by Judith)

Hi Folks, I have a project to show you today using the Thistle Butterfly/Honeysuckle Butterfly Multibuy stamp sets. These new sets are a lovely addition to the range of floral butterfly stamps, and great for mixing and matching with older stamps in the range, or using by themselves.

For my project, I covered a canvas with vintage music paper, and then painted it with various shades of acrylic paint in greens and blues. I stamped the flourish from the set around the edges in teal and burnt orange ink to create a border. This is such a lovely stamp. I stamped the honeysuckle image onto the background, and again onto some white card. I coloured the image on the card with pencils before cutting it out and adding it to the canvas.

I coloured some scrap card using Distress Inks in shades of blue and orange. I stamped some letters from the Newsprint Alphabet onto the card to spell the word 'Fleur', before cutting them out. I distressed and inked the edges of the little panels, and added these to my canvas.


Keep checking back for lots of lovely samples from my Team mates over the coming month. Judith xx

  4. Your background is fabulous Judith but what I want to know is how the heck did you cut out all that beautiful honeysuckle. I like fussy cutting but my eyes are not good enough for that kind of detail now nor my hands steady enough. It's a beautiful canvas my friend!

  10. I can see why that flourish stamp has become a favourite of yours - so versatile. Your orange honeysuckle picks out the warmth of the brown in your edges as well as in the alphabet tiles. I particularly like the way your butterflies' wings mimic the blue edging of the canvas as a whole.
