Guest Post - Mixed Media Butterfly by Corine van Kuilenburg

We are already at the second post from Guest Team member Corine and this week she has chosen to combine Chocolate Baroque stamps with Brushos. Enjoy.

Today is my second post as guest designer. I hope you liked my first post. This time I created a mixed media card. 

  • First paste on a piece of card stock book paper. Paint this with gesso. Emboss an image from Dusky Damask with clear embossing powder. Use 2 or 3 colours of Brusho and spritz with water. Make sure your whole card  is covered with Brusho. Let everything dry completely.
  • Use stencils and inks to add more detail to your background. Stamp with black ink one or two images from Rustic Fragments.
  • Emboss the butterfly from Tangled Garden on watercolor paper and color it in with markers and a water brush. Cut out and glue to your background.
I hope I have inpired you.



You have certainly inspired me to get out a selection of papers, stamps and colour Corine, thank you. And if you enjoy being inspired by our Design Team then please visit us again, there is sure to be something to whet your appetite.
