A Butterfly in the Window by Brenda

Hello Peeps, Brenda here with a few shares from the creations I made for last months Hochanda shows which featured yet more beautiful stamps, some with a feel of Spring which should be bursting into life any day now....I hope.

I used a stencil to create the window on the top card with the stencil and sponged Distress Inks and with the stencil still in place I stamped one of the backgrounds from Rustic Fragements, then three Butterflies from Doodle Butterflies stamped onto card inked with the same DI's, cut out and decoupaged. Finally a sentiment to finish.

Distress Oxides again in the background applied with a brayer, then Snowdrop Script stamped four times graduating the height and the colour from the Snowdrops bleached out and a sentiment from the same set.

I used the flower head from Doodle Birds and added a stem using one of the worker stamps to create a stem, added a decoupaged Butterfly from Doodle Butterflies along with a sentiment stamped onto a piece of Aida. The background was created with acrylic paint, some over stamping with Distress Ink and bleach.

I have used the Doodle Bird set again here along with the bottom panel stamped with one of the images from Rustic Fragements, some ribbon and little Dragonflies from the Butterfly set.

I incorporated images from all sets in the shows on this one, once again Oxides for the background and Versafine Clair for all the stamping.

Have a lovely day everyone and many thanks for your visits and words of encouragement.

  3. Beautiful designs using these pretty stamps and colours too. I love the arched window stencil with the butterflies and the pretty bird with one of the Rustic Fragments and the sweet ribbon embellishment. The snowdrops are perfect for early Spring and such a bright background too and the wonderful flower images on the third and combined with more snowdrops and another wonderful bird on the last, all fantastic makes. x
