Thinking of You Butterfly

Hello there, today I am sharing my second project using the amazing new release by Kim Dellow for PaperArtsy. Today I am using the gorgeous butterfly from the EKD05 Stamp Set, as well as the PS048 Stencil Pack along with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints.

I started my card by running a piece of white cardstock through my Cuttlebug and embossing the one of the stencils from the PS048 set. The stencil comes with the actual stencil portion as well as the masks and these emboss beautifully. I then took the butterfly from the EKD05 set and stamped this on to white cardstock using Black Soot Archival Ink using my Mini MISTI.

To colour the butterfly, I used Bubble Gum and Coral PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints. I tried to paint it to that the darker coral colour is on the bottom and fades to pink at the top. Once the paint was dry, I added the cardstock back in my MISTI and stamped it again. This meant that I has dark, crisp outlines to the image. It was then cut out using scissors. I mixed some of the coral paint with Pearl Glaze and splattered this on to the embossed cardstock piece for some added interest.

The embossed piece was added to an A2 size white card base with foam tape and then the butterfly added with tape runner to the centre and foam to the wings. The sentiment is from the PaperArtsy EM24 stamp set. This was stamped on to white cardstock and cut in a trip. It was added to the card with tape runner.
