A Bold Butterfly by Stampin’ Up!

A Bold Butterfly by Stampin’ Up! 


Happy Thursday folks! I’m back with this lovely sketch challenge for Create with Connie & Mary this week. I had a piece of watercolour paper left over from a previous challenge where I had used the watercolour pencils to create the strip instead of using DSP. Waste not, want not – as the saying goes! So I thought I would use that as my starting point for this week’s challenge. The sentiment is from Thankful Thoughts and was stamped before I adhered the card front to the card base.


A Bold Butterfly by Stampin' Up! Tracy May #CCMC455

I teamed it up with a gold glitter butterfly that I cut using the Bold Butterfly by Stampin’ Up! Framelits dies. I also used Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Watercolor Wings stamp set. First, I cut out the square using the Stitched Shapes Framelits (I made sure to use the right one for the stamp). Then I used my Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write markers to colour in one of the smaller butterflies from Watercolor Wings. I sprayed it with some water before stamping. Once it was dry I added the gold glitter butterfly and adhered it with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Luckily none of these products are on the retiring list!
