I look forward to Thursdays when our talented group of stampers share our blog hop with you. Today was a sketch challenge that I thought was fun to use. I decided to ink up my Butterfly Basic stamp set to showcase this sketch.
Here is the sketch:
Stampin Up “Butterfly Basics:
Here is the recipe for the card:
Card Base: Whisper White 5-1/2 x 8, scored at 4-1/4
Mat: Everyday Chic DSP 5-1/2 x 4-1/4
Angled Mat: Tangelo Twist 5-1/2 x 5 cut at angles
Angled Art Piece: Whisper White 5-1/2 x 5 cut at angles
Thin Strip: Everyday Chic 1/2 x 3
Sentiment Mat: Everyday Chic DSP 3/4 x 5-1/2 cut with the Triple Banner Punch
Sentiment: Whisper White 1/2 x 4-1/2 cut with the Triple Banner Punch. I used the sentiment from Sheltering Tree stamp set to ink up the verse on the sentiment banner.
The fern was inked in old olive and stamped several times using the stamping off technique. That is where you ink up the stamp and stamp your image once and then stamp it again before re-inking it up. This gives you a two tone effect that adds more dimension to the background.
The splatters were inked in daffodil delight using Timeless Textures. Daffodil delight was also used for the postage stamp image also.
The flowers were inked in Staz on Black ink as the first step. With my blender pen I colored in the flowers using Tangelo Twist ink, repeating the process to deepen the centers of the flowers to give them some shading. The centers were colored in with my blender pen and daffodil delight ink.
The leaves were also colored in using mossy meadow ink and the blender pen.
Large Butterfly: Basic Black cut out with the Butterfly Thinlits
Small Butterfly: Tangelo Twist cut out with the Butterfly Thinlit. Wink of Stella was using to put on some sparkle.
Finishing touches: I added some thin Metallic Thread behind the butterflies then added some It’s My Party Enamel dots and pearls for the final touch.
