In a desperate attempt to bring a little summer into our soggy lives I stamped a lavender field, using inks in four different shades of purple, and made a pair of butterflies to live there.
One is stamped on water colour paper and the other on a scrap of Naturals Ivory card stock and they're both coloured with Watercolour Wonder crayons, markers and an aqua painter. The creaminess of the crayons gives the butterflies a lovely velvety look and the different card stocks give a subtle colour difference (the one on the left is the water colour paper). I cut my butterflies out with my sharp paper snips and attached them to the card front with glue dots.
This pretty sentiment from the Curly Cute set is stamped on thick vellum paper and embossed with clear embossing powder. The paper was wrapped around the top layer and secured with Snail adhesive at the back.
