Butterflies and Flowers

Hi Everyone, Chrissy D here!!! Every now and then I see an image or a technique that I just have to try but do not always have the correct supplies, so I improvise… Some times it works and other times, I throw the project in the trash or set it aside for another day. I got lucky this week and it turned out. *HAPPY DANCE*
Treescape
I started with the Crafters Workshop stencil, Treescape and taped it down to Smooth White cardstock with my painters tape. I used a Stipple Brush along with several ink colors – mustard, navy, light blue, lavender and olive to create the background. Using the Butterflies and Flowers bookmark,  I stamped the image using Staz On Black Ink and then proceeded to clean it right away using the StazOn All Purpose Cleaner to clean the stamp.  Art Neko also carries refills for this great cleaner! You can find the StazOn All-Purpose Stamp Cleaner Refill here.

I grabbed my old Watercolor crayons from my stash and used my Aquapainter to watercolor the floral image. However, as I was looking around Art Neko, I found this! Have you seen these? Liquid Ink Markers Set (10)These sound so cool! These markers can be can be blended with a watercolor brush to create even more colors. Imagine the possibilities! Adding them to my WISH LIST! I love FUN, NEW toys, don’t you?

To finish off the card, I stamped Thank You in StazOn ink and added Stickles to the flowers on the bookmark.  I appreciate you stopping by today! Be sure to come back tomorrow to see Miss Holly Brown’s artwork. Have a great day!

    What a beautiful background, Chrissy – and yet soft enough to still let that beautiful floral panel and butterfly shine as the stars of the card.

    Wow, Chrissy, I am glad you did not throw away this background, it makes a beautiful card.
