Hi everyone and welcome. Over at the IndigoBlu challenge blog we are half way through the current 'Indian Summer' challenge so the DT are serving up some extra inspiration for you. Here is a simple take on the theme...
I got inspiration for this from some projects posted by Brenda Brown a couple of months ago. The simplicity of the whole look meant the butterflies really came to life and took centre stage.
After adhering some burlap to a card base I smeared white Gee-Sso Good! gesso on top unevenly, heating it a little in places to make it puff up. Having repeated this a couple of times the base was set. I stamped butterflies and the sentiment from the 'Butterfly Collector' A5 stamp set onto a single layer of tissue with Archival Ink and applied it to the base with a coat of Slap It On.
The same butterflies were stamped onto acetate, again with Archival Ink before being cut out. I used ProMarkers to colour the reverse of the butterflies to add colour - remember, don't colour with these on top of Archival Ink as they will react to each other and ruin your stamping. Then a touch of fussy cutting before they were layered over the tissue using Glossy Accents. Simple staples in two corners and a spritz of Victorian Velvet Reinker mist completed the look.
I hope you now take the opportunity to head on over to the IndigoBlu challenge blog to see what my team mates and fellow demonstrators have created before joining in the fun to be in with a chance to win.
Time for me to take flight for now.
Take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx
