A few weeks ago I tried out new watercolors -those that come in tubes-. I was surprised to learn how pigmented they are and how much they allowed me to play with the colors, blending them to create beautiful washes. Well, that is exactly how today’s cards started off!
This month’s release at the shop was very special to me, because it is my birthday month and we had a special bonus stamp release (Pray Digital Stamp Set). I have been so technique driven this month that I based my stamp choice for today purely on how I wanted to finish off these backgrounds. I used 3 colors for this watercolored wash: Ultramarine, Rose and Purple Pale.
These stunning butterflies are from a set called Persevere -available now on Etsy-. I printed the butterflies on vellum at around 3.5 and 2.5 inches (using Microsoft Word to resize and arrange my print), using a laser printer. I then foiled them at low temperature with a Silver Deco Foil Transfer Sheet. I fussy cut each butterfly and attached them to the background.
We have lots of inspiration for you today -as always-, so make sure you leave each of these talented ladies some love!
