For this months 'Rerun' there are looking at one of my favourite floral sets 'In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya'. I usually stamp the images of this set for a funky one-layer design but decided to get out of my comfort zone and do a bit of water colouring (as boy oh boy do I need more practice!!):
I cut a panel of white CS smaller than my card front and stamped the middle of the butterfly (using Hero Arts 'Butterfly Layered set') in black. I had already stamped and heat embossed the flower on some water coloured CS with rose gold embossing powder. I used my Zig Clean Colour brushes to colour them in (along with some water and a small brush) and when dry I fussy cut them out.
I added a piece of foam tape under the wider part of the flower and a piece of double-sided tape to the smaller side and pressed them on either side of the butterfly body. This kept them in place and gave them some dimension. I stamped the sentiment using Winnie and Walter 'The Big, the Bold and the Happy' and popped the panel up on foam tape. And of course I added some co-ordinating sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for a bit of shine.
I'm going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.
Right, I have just enough time to add another card to the challenge before it closes. Off I run!!
Very creative. I'm mesmerized by your sequins!ReplyDelete
