Sponge River Rock ink in the middle of a 4″ square piece of Whisper White card stock.
Sponged Sahara Sand ink around the outside of the River Rock ink.
Sponged Baja Breeze ink around the edges of the card stock.
Stamped the leaf from the Stampin’ Up! set Summer Solstice using River Rock ink.
Stamped the Butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! set Summer Solstice using Basic Black ink.
Drew to lines using a Chocolate Chip marker. These will be the branches for the leaves.
Stamped the leaves so the stems met the branchs using Soft Suede ink.
Colored in the butterfly using a Bashful Blue marker.
Added Pacific Point marker to the wings.
Blended the two colors together by coloring over them using the Bashful Blue marker again.
Added a bit of Not Quite Navy marker to the edges of the wings.
Colored the leaves in using a River Rock marker.
Added Baja Breeze marker to the leaves.
Colored over the leaves again using the River Rock marker to blend.
Cut a 4 7/8″ x 6.4″ Baja Breeze card stock, a 3″ x 4.75″ piece of Designer Series Paper (ripped on the right side), sponged Pacific Point ink on the edges of the panels and main image panel.
Added Pacific Point marker to the leaves.
Added a shadow using the Sahara Sand marker.
Layered a Not Quite Navy panel, the Baja Breeze Panel, designer series panel and a River Rock panel that has been cut into a “V” at the end.
Added Hemp Twine to the main image panel and popped up the panel using Stampin’ Demensionals.
Stamped one of the butterflies on River Rock card stock, twice using a Basic Black marker to load the image.
Added Bashful Blue and Pacific Point marker to the butterflies.
I wanted the middle of the butterflies to be lighter so I colored in the middles using a White Gel pen and then colored over the white gel pen using the Bashful Blue marker.
Punched out the butterflies using a 3/4″ x 15/16″ oval punch. Sponged Pacific Point ink around the edges of each.
Using the Crop-o-dile, added gold eyes.
Tied the tags onto the twine ends and then popped up the tags using Stampin’ Demensionals.
Added a strip of Not Quite Navy card stock to the right hand side of the card and pierced holes in the strip using the Stampin’ Up! mat pack and piercing tool.
Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
May your day be filled with fun and laughter.
Until my next post. . . . . .
