Bright, happy and fun! I immediately thought of Valentine's Day but, since I'm still in need of thank you notes for holiday gifts, opted for a note of thanks instead:The stamp set I used today, Timeless Textures, was the first thing I ordered from the new Occasions catalog! If you're a fan of the Gorgeous Grunge set (waving my hand high, here) then you're going to LOVE Timeless Textures. I used three of the stamps to make the background for my butterfly. I love how the swirling circles (I think they look like coffee stains) end up looing like butterfly trails on this card.
It's so difficult to capture all the sparkle that comes from the Wink of Stella brush pen but trust me, this butterfly is COVERED in it! I backed the butterfly with a piece of vellum just to make it stand out a little bit on the busy background.
Equally as difficult to capture are my Wink of Stella splotches you can (sort of) see here. There's a little stamp of random spots in this set and I inked it up with the Wink of Stella (WOS) pen and stamped them here. That's right, I just brushed over the stamp with the WOS pen and stamped them right on the card. They catch the light nicely and add to the iridescence of the butterfly.
Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to pop over to The Paper Players and check out all the inspiration from the rest of the Design Team. We would love to see your creation in the gallery so join us before the challenge closes on Friday, January 15th at Noon (PST).
