Good morning, fellow Chocoholics! I'm back with another crafty inspiration showcasing the fab August release stamps. Today I'm playing with the Honeysuckle Butterfly A5 sheet.
I started by heat embossing the butterfly from the Honeysuckle Butterfly A5 sheet using white EP. Next I inked the background, blending Distress Inks in several shades of yellow. Over the butterflies, I dabbed a darker shade of orange to make them pop. Then I carefully stitched down a layer of vellum. This softens the background and gives it depth too.
For the foreground, I stamped the stalk of daisies from the Honeysuckle Butterfly set on white CS, coloured it with alcohol markers, fussy cut and adhered it over the vellum. The sentiment is from Birthday Words.
I also stamped a couple of butterflies from the same A5 set onto vellum and fussy cut those too.
(A full description of the inks and colours used in this project is available on my blog).
Thank you for stopping by today. Please drop in regularly to see more inspirational work from the rest of the Design Team.
