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.

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!

Stylish Stems Framelits By Stamping’ Up!

Stylish Stems Framelits By Stamping’ Up!

Welcome back! It’s time for another sketch challenge from Create with Connie & Mary this week. I played around with a few ideas in my head for this challenge before settling on an idea I took from the fabulously talented German demonstrator Steffi Helmschrott (which you can see here)!

Instead of using a piece of DSP for the strip down the left hand side of the card, I got out my watercolour pencils and created a rainbow on a panel of watercolour paper. I used the Melon Mambo, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive pencils and an aqua painter. I cut out the square (using the Stitched Shape framelits) and the flower using the Stylish Stems Framelits by Stamping’ Up! So it would match the card front, I used another piece of watercolour paper!

I did get through a few pieces of the watercolour paper before I got the look I was after, but I think I got there in the end! Do you like it? I do hope so.

The sentiment is from Thoughtful Banners by the way! Oh and the card base is made from Crumb Cake, which I think really makes the rainbow colours pop.

Please do pop along and see what the rest of the lovely design team have come up with this week. You can also play along on the Create with Connie & Mary Facebook page too!
