Sparkle & Shine Butterflies Hero Arts

P1070608

Welcome to the September Watercolour Challenge at Happy Little Stampers. Each month we have a fun twist for you to use if you wish or it can just be a free anything goes watercolour.  This month the twist is ‘butterflies’.

For my card, I decide to gold heat emboss 3 different butterflies from Hero Arts -Fluttering Stamp Set, watercolour with Distress Inks and fussy cut them.

After adding a Distress Ink wash to the card front and adding the sentiment from HA Special Note of Thanks stamp set, it was adhered to the card.

I played with the arrangement of  the butterflies on the front of the card until I was happy with the effect.

There are lots of great inspiration from our wonderful design team over on our blog. I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month.

Lovely Birthday with Concord & 9th

P1070606

Hello there

I recently purchased Concord & 9th Detailed Blooms Die, which I just loved. So I decided to create a shaped card that used the die as the feature.

After cutting the die from some white card stock, I used it to draw around the front panel allowing a small border and fussy cut it.

I then started to build up the colour on the front panel using SAI Japanese Water colour pens (similar to Zig pens) in 2 shades of pink and some Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Dust – Rich Gold. Once I was happy with the intensity of colour, it was left to dry.

The die cut was also washed using the same colours.

The sentiment was gold heat embossed using Concord & 9th – Hello Lovely and Happy Day stamp sets.

The front panel was then adhered to the card front and the top was again fussy cut.

Finally the die cut was added to the front and some small gems finished the card.

I was really happy with the results.  I hope you like it too.

Thanks so much for stopping  by

Time to Celebrate – 4 Sunny Scenes

 

P1070579

Hello again

My card features an old wood block mini set by a local artist, I bought when I first started stamping.  It is still a favourite.

The scenes were stamped, Distress water coloured and fussy cut.

I felt a happy sunny background would be perfect.  I used a stencil with Distress Ink. As there wasn’t a centre, I cut a circle in some paper and added an inked centre.

Then it was just a matter of adding the scenes and the sentiment from MFT Celebrate with Cake set.

I hope you like it too!

Have a good weekend

Helen
