Art Journal Page (by Gerrina)

Hello everyone, Guest Design Team member Gerrina is back for her final post this month, and she has created a pretty Art Journal page featuring some of our butterfly range of stamps. 

Gerrina writes:

Feels so is my turn again to show some things I made for the Guest Designer team at Chocolate Baroque! Three weeks in a row you will find my makes with the beautiful stamps from Chocolate Baroque. This week the last of the month, again an Art Journal page.

I am a big fan of their stamps, so you will see more of them here on my blog.

Used Materials:

Stamps: Chocolate Baroque Patchwork Butterfly
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Distress Oxide: Shaded Lilac, Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Shabby Shutters, Carved Pumpkin
Other: Watercolour paper and Masking paper, water, Sparkle brush and blending tool

The shine/glimmer from the sparkle brush:

Stamp the butterfly twice and mask both.
Mist some water over the watercolour paper and stamp directly with the lilac, yellow, green and pink inkpads on the paper in a nice pattern. Let dry completely.
Stamp the swirl stamp several times over the paper with the orange and let the stamp go 'over the edge'. Mist the paper and let dry.
Stamp the text and go over the two butterflies with a sparkle brush.
Make a soft edge with the lilac ink by going over the edges with a blending tool.
