Good morning. This was one of my samples for the recent shows on Hochanda with Lesley Wharton. It is a quick and easy make.
I used a technique demonstrated on one of Lesley’s shows recently. I inked up a 4 inch round gelli printing plated with Distress Ink and then lifted off some of the ink using the Big Bold Background Leafy Trails stamp, then transferred the image to stamping card. I overstamped with the butterfly and swirl from Patchwork Butterfly set using Versafine. Finally I added a little colour with a gold sparkle pen and edged the topper with black marker to frame.
I cut the main card blank in black card (A4 sheet) and trimmed out the trellis from the central panel.
The background panel was cut in blue card. The swirls were stamped on the left and right hand sides of the panel. The rest of the scene was hand drawn in using the fine tipped pen and pencils. I used a circle die as a template for the moon.
The butterfly was stamped onto the background and coloured with the sparkle pens. The background panel was then glued to the card blank.
The blossom and branches were cut from blue and white card and the blossom coloured with sparkle pen.
The butterflies were stamped onto blue card, coloured with sparkle pens and pencil, then cut out.
The cut out elements were then glued to the card. Thin foam pads were used for added dimension.
I finished with dots of glitter glue for added sparkle.
Good morning. Here is another of my show samples for the butterfly stamp bundle from Chocolate Baroque recently featured on Hochanda.
I used some hand coloured paper from my stash for the background. This was created using the shaving foam technique: Layer shaving foam onto a tray, drop and swirl inks into the surface, pick up and transfer the inks to paper.
I used dies to make the rocker card and to cut the tag and decorative leaves. The flower was created from stamped butterfly wings.
Good morning. Here is one of my samples for the butterfly stamp set shows featured on Hochanda recently with Chocolate Baroque. If you missed the shows they are available for a while on the website. Lesley Wharton did some great demos so the shows are well worth a watch. There were also so many fabulous projects and inspiration from my Teamies.
I used a large label die to create the decorative card blank using blue card. I cut a decorative mat from the holographic card and layered onto the card front.
The swirls were stamped onto blue card using Versafine and were heat embossed with clear powder.
The butterflies were stamped with Versamark and embossed with the silver sparkly powder. Colour was added using gouache paint. I mixed the blue and white to get a colour to match the blue card base.
The swirls and butterflies were cut out and layered onto the card with 3D glue gel. For added depth and strength I layered some plain blue card butterflies behind the smaller butterflies (using the stamped and cut out ones as a template).
Good morning. Today I am sharing a set of quick and easy butterfly cards created using the large Patchwork Butterfly stamp from Chocolate Baroque.
The first: Wet card and sprinkle Brusho onto butterfly, spritz again to encourage colour burst. Leave to dry naturally for an intense effect, or use a heat gun to reduce the colour intensity slightly. Add some Glossy Accents onto some areas for added interest
The second and third done by colouring the stamp with watercolour pens and overstamping onto the black image. Tip: Colour the stamp directly with pens, then lightly mist with water to activate before stamping. Can stamp several times from one colouring of the stamp – misting again between each re-stamping. Great for batch making. To encourage more colour bleed I also spritzed the card after stamping the coloured image to give a nice watercolour effect.
