Butterfly Flutter Into The Sky – Visible Image stamps

Hi There! Thanks for coming to see us today ūüôā

It’s Fabulous Friday here at Visible Image so it’s over to the very fabulous Pauline Butcher…

Hi there,
 
It’s fabulous Friday again, and I’d like to share a creation I’ve made using some of the fantastic¬†Visible Image Stamps¬†available.
 
I decided to make a sort of mixed media card, using my very favourite butterfly stamps.

The stamps I used were……..
 and Butterfly Sentiment.
 
I started off with a piece of watercolour card, and smoothed Grunge paste through a wood patterned stencil, when it as dry, I painted randomly it using Aquatints. Using the Retro Dots background and the Bronte script, and some Distress inks, I stamped randomly holding the stamp in my hand, and not on a block, then with the Treasure Gold gilding wax on my finger, I added it to the raised bits to enhance the pattern.

On a piece of black card, I stamped 5 smaller Butterflies and one large Butterfly with Versamark, and heat embossed using white powder, and fussy cut them all out, I  also used the same steps for the sentiment. I used Stickles as a colouring medium on the butterflies.
