Butterflies by Zoe

Good morning Lovelies, I'm here with my first post this month with my Butterfly samples that were featured recently on Hochanda, wasn't Lesley fab? The demos were great, the biggest problem is, the hour goes far too fast!

So here are some of my samples.

My first 3 samples I used "Bleeding Art Tissue" to create my backgrounds, my first I used the beautiful flourish in Green Ink and parts of one of the new background stamps in a pink ink, then my butterfly onto white card and cut out. I very often leave my main images white with a colourful background, I love that contrast.

 
My second card I used the stencil and simply stamped over.



 
I stamped the solid image in Black and overstamped using Versamark Inkpad and heat embossed in gold.


 
My final card I stamped and heat embossed using Black Onyx Versafine Inkpad and black powder, I masked it off using masking tissue from the website, stamped the flourishes and heat embossed using clear powder and a Versamark Inkpad, then blended Distress inks over and splashing water over to create texture.

And no! This Butterfly was not flying downward the presenter had it sideways on tv! 

 
Thank you for visiting and leaving such fab comments, I hope you like my creations? Have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx

  10. How pretty all the cards are Zoe and the bleeding art tissue colours are so bright and beautiful, and I love all the different butterflies, and the contrast between the black and white butterfly and the coloured background stripes looks great on the first card. x
