Hello there! We have Lisa Taggart here on the blog today with 2 stunning cards featuring the inky butterfly stamp from our ‘Live Life Now’ set with 2 of our butterfly stencils on a gorgeous background…
For today’s project I’ve made a duo of cards using both stencils and stamps from Visible Image including some of my personal favourites. I’ve also had a little fun using one of the new large rectangle gel press shapes from Ranger.
I used the following stamps and stencils:
‘The Ripple Effect’ background stamp set was also used but I’ve since learned that it may be retired. It’s never too late to bring it back Mark! Hopefully many of you will already have this old favourite but if not any of the other background stamp sets would work.
To create the background I began by brayering lilac pigment ink on to the Gel press plate. On top of this I lightly sprinkled different colours of brusho powders pre mixed with water using a fan brush. I then pulled a print on to white card.
To enhance this a little further I used the entwined butterflies and count me in stencils along with iridescent gold acrylic paint to create subtle interest on top. The effects of this can be seen on the final project depending on the angle of the light.
I then used the large butterfly stencil, the background stamp set, ‘Live life now’ set and coloured ink to build up the layers.
I divided the print into two before adding the final stamped layer using black ink. I also added gold splatters and the sentiment.
Bye for now and I hope your year is a good one!
Wow these are absolutely stunning Lisa! Your backgrounds are incredible, and the gold paint against the vibrant colour looks fabulous! Thank you ♡
