Hi, I was asked to make an anniversary card without any other clues as to what the recipient was celebrating, so I hope they like butterflies!
At Less is More, the challenge this week is to use a rubber stamp and also to use water colors if you can.
I stamped this butterfly onto regular cardstock with Versafine and embossed with clear ep. I fussy cut it and coloured it with my Tombow markers and blended the colour out using an aqua brush. I highlighted the dots with diamond stickles. The leaf trim is punched from a snippet of vellum. The bottom layer is painted with twinkling H2O's and I added another layer on top to diffuse the colour a bit more.
I bought my first copic marker the other week. It's black. I read that you can colour almost anything with copics, so I thought I'd try colouring my sentiment sticker. I wanted to use a black sentiment but only had a gold sticker. I think it worked pretty well!
I'm going to link up to a few other challenges. At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, the theme is Anything Goes.
Using snippets means I get to visit the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
At Just Add Ink, the theme is to just add colouring.
Materials used: Penny Black Social Butterfly stamp; Martha Stewart frond punch; Tombow markers; vellum; twinkling H20's; bling and sentiment sticker from stash.
Thanks for visiting :)
