Hello, Lisa here with another inspirational look at April's theme - Birds and Bees.
But with a twist... I've used butterflies.
My previous creations for this theme included bees and birds. So, this time I went with a more pretty version of a winged creature - butterflies.
Of course, there is no limit to what winged creature you could have using this technique.
Here is my creation...
I coloured a piece of white card with Distress Inks using Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio and Blueprint Sketch. I then sprayed the inked background with water and left to dry.
I used The Artistic Stamper 3 x 3 Harlequin Mask with the same colours of ink to add some depth.
I then stamped the butterflies and coloured them them with Carved Pumpkin, Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks.
I stamped the word 'fly' using black ink then
over-stamped with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink, and lightly brushed Blueprint Sketch ink over the top.
To finish, I matted the background on to Kraft Card.
Thanks for popping by.
Toodles for now,
The stamps and stencil I have used are available on The Artistic Stamper website.
