Thanks for your kindness – Hero Arts Butterflies

 

P1070947 Hello and welcome

It’s hard to believe it’s December already!  Of course, that also means a new challenge over at  Watercolour Challenge at Happy Little Stampers. Our fun optional twist for December if you wish is ‘Stencil’.  However, anything  watercolour is just fine.

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.
IF YOU USE STAMPS BY HAPPY LITTLE STAMPERS AND YOU ARE OUR RANDOM WINNER, YOUR PRIZE WILL BE DOUBLED!

This is not quite the card, I had planned, but I think it turned out ok.

Originally, I had planned to use  water through the stencil to take out the colour from the Distress Ink background.  However, my ink blending was obviously too light to make a difference.  So then it was on to plan B – smooching gold Delicatta ink through the stencil to give the subtle background I was after. The stencil is Memory Box – Butterfly Flutter.

I feel it looked quite effective in the end.

The butterflies (Hero Arts – Antique Engravings and one from Pinkpaislee – Butterfly Garden set) was stamped in black ink, then watercoloured with a mix of Distress Inks and Tombow Pens, then restamped with Brilliance Lightning Black ink to give a shine. Easy enough thanks to my Misti! Each butterfly was then fussy cut and arranged on the die cut card front.

The sentiment from Hero Arts – Thanks Stamp & Cut, was also stamped in Brilliance ink.

The combination of all these elements gives the card a lovely shine IRL. I’m not usre even this close-up shows it.

Please head over to our blog and check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team!  I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month.  Good luck!

Thanks so much for visiting
Cheers

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. You have made the perfect background thanks to Plan B. So soft enabling those beautiful bright butterflies to take centre stage. Fabulous fussy cutting and placement Helen. Great sentiment too.

  2. Your butterflies are amazing. Great colors and arrangement of individual butterflies. When I look at the card, I have the impression that these butterflies are spinning in a dance around me. Beautiful card
