Joy here bringing you my first post for Darkroom Door..
I must say when my parcel of goodies arrive I could not wait to dive in and if you have followed along with my blog you will have already seen that I have created a few projects already :)
Today I am here to share a clean and simple card with you all and if you also know me, this is so my style..
I will take you through how I created this pretty glittery butterfly..
- Stamp out butterfly image onto water colour paper from the Butterflies Stamp Set, inking up with Archival Jet Black Ink.
- Using water colour paints (I use a brand called Sakura) paint the butterfly until satisfied with the colour tones and once dry trim out the butterfly.
- Creating background panel, using more water colour paper, ink up the Harlequin Background Stamp with Versamark ink, stamping onto the water colour paper and embossing with clear embossing powder.
- Using water colour paints again apply the different colours to the background until happy with each layer, dry off with heat tool and die cut a circle from the panel.
- Wanting to soften the look of the water colour background so that the butterfly will stand out, die cut another circle of the same size out of vellum and adhere over the top of the water colour panel.
- Apply a glittery layer to the butterfly using Wink of Stella clear pen and adhere sewing thread behind the butterfly, adhere to the circle panel.
- Trim out words from the Paris Vol 1 Wordstrip and adhere one word above and the other below the butterfly.
- Adhere this circle to a piece of white card stock that was stamped and embossed with the French Script Background Stamp and adhere the whole panel to a trimmed white card.
HINT: To add different dimension and look to a card, try stamping a background stamp on the diagonal and emboss white on white for a really elegant look.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by today and read my first post for Darkroom Door, I look forward to bringing you many more in the future. Have a great day!
