It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Bessie Buggies Bloom – S173 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Butterfly Kisses – D007 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Bessie is all set for Spring and flowers blooming. I’m not very good with flowers, but my husband has a green thumb and is really good at keeping our flower garden looking beautiful every year.
To make this card I started off with a base card of 6″ x 6″. I fell in love with this background paper as it suited the sentiment and the darling little butterfly “Bessie” so well. I tried to colour Bessie’s wings and outfit to match the colours of the other butterflies in the background.
Once the image was coloured, I added some Wink of Stella – Clear to the wings. Unfortunately, it doesn’t show up in the picture. I die cut the finished image using my Cuttlebug and circle dies and then I die cut a black circle to layer it onto. I thought this made the image pop. I stamped the sentiment and also layered that onto some black cardstock. I then popped up the sentiment and the image with 3M VHB – 2 sides tape. To finish off the card, I inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles.
