Let's start with the Buds. This card features the big bold sketchy blooms coloured with alcohol markers before fussy cutting them. To create background texture without bulk I used thick water colour paper, Distress Inks and lots of water. When dry, I stamped the bubbly image from Texture Fragments with Distress Ink. The stems for the flowers are from the Wild Meadow sheet, stamped with Distress Ink. To finish the card: a greeting from Birthday Words and a few tiny gems.
And now we move on to the Bugs. For this project, I'm showcasing the butterflies from Sketchy Doodle Flowers A4 stamp sheet.
To create the background I did some emboss resist using the floral fragment from the Texture Fragments A4 stamp sheet and white embossing powder, followed by some good old fashioned blending with Distress Inks. For texture and shine I added Distress Glitter and went 3D with paper flowers from my stash. The scene is now set for the bugs. I coloured these sketchy butterflies with alcohol markers, fussy cut and adhered them to the background. To finish: a greeting from Butterfly Dreams. And voila!
I wanted to show you how versatile these stamps are by mixing and matching them with other stamps and materials from my stash. You don't need to go mad on technique to make these stamps shine. Keep it simple, play with colours, break a few rules and have fun! You'll be surprised what you can do with these sketchy doodle stamps. As always, I have details of products and tools on my blog.
