Hearts, Butterflies and Flowers (by Sandra)


I'm sharing with you my second post from the August Hochanda show.

For my first card I made a background using Brushos choosing blues and greens. I then stamped the flowers from Celebration Bouquet and embossed in white.

For my second card, I used water colours to make a soft background on cartridge paper. I then stamped the bouquet and embossed in gold and coloured with water colour pens.

Next I used the Butterflies and Dictionary definition from Happy Flower's Day stamp set. I bleached the colour from the butterflies and used a soft blue/green water colour.

For this card I used the Butterflies again with the Triple Layer Stamping method and kept it very simple in the black and white colours.

Next are the fabulous Artist Trading Hearts. For this card I used  the Filigree Trading Hearts set. I  used some glossy card and alcohol inks to make a background, I then stamped and embossed the crackle heart and the butterfly from Happy Flower's Day and cut them out and mounted onto a blank card with a sentiment.

For my last piece, I used a piece of grey board which I added some modelling paste through a stencil and some acrylic paints. I stamped the heart onto a background paper I had made on the Gelli Plate. I stamped the leaves onto some card and cut them out and hung them from the heart to make it look a bit like a dream-catcher.

Thanks for looking
