Butterflies & Blossoms

I have a new toy, the tree builder punch; and I have a feeling it will be rather versatile.
I am eager to play with the shapes and come up with new designs aside from the many different uses that are provided with the matching stamp set.

This first one is a rather simple design. I used several of the trees to make a large branch. The flower in this punch was too small for my taste so I teamed it with the Itty Bitty Accents blossom.


I added a touch of colour with my Copics and shaped the flowers a little.
Its hard to tell in the photos but I also sponged a little Soft Sky on the background.


Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill, Recollections, silver foil
Stamp: Because You Care - SU
Ink: Early Espresso - SU
Alcohol markers: Copic - RV10, RV34
Punch: Tree Builder - SU, Itty Bitty Accents - SU
Die: Bold Butterfly Framelits - SU
Misc.: foam tape (to mount the butterfly)

Layered Butterfly

It was so simple to create this lovely triple layered butterfly with SU's dies and stamp set and the effect is stunning!


I mixed various colours and experimented with different looks. Even though the small butterfly is pink and the large orange combining them still worked. The filigree like butterfly allows various colours to blend together without being overpowering.

 

I used the Watercolor Wings set to stamp all three butterflies, then cut 1 large with the solid butterfly die and the other two with the cut out butterflies. I glued them one on top of the other using foam tape cut into narrow strips.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollections white
Stamps: Watercolor Wings - SU, Butterfly Basics - SU
Ink: Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip (solid butterfly), Chocolate Chip, Early Expresso (no background - large cut our butterfly), Belushi Bride, Strawberry Slush, Island Indigo (small butterfly), Old Olive, Mossy meadow, Chocolate Chip, Tangelo twist - all SU

Watercolor wings over sized card

After playing a little with these gorgeous butterflies I thought they would be best served on a  larger canvas than normal, so opted for a 5.5 x 8.5 (A7) card. This size really allows for great flow without the card seeming too overcrowded.


I used different shades of purple for these butterflies. To be honest I tried several different combinations to see which blended the best, this is why the butterflies are different colours. Still nto sure which I like best.
The top one consists of Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss and Elegant Eggplant. The Bottom butterfly is Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss. Each butterfly is trimmed with a row of 5 rhinestones that I coloured with alcohol markers to match.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollections - white
Stamps: Watercolor Wings - SU, Watercolor Wash background - SU, Gorgeous Grunge - SU, Tin of Cards (sentiment) - SU
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss, Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Delightful Dijon - SU, Tuxedo Black - Memento
Alcohol markers: Copic - RV34, V17
Misc.: foam mounting tape, purple and pink sequins, rhinestones

I'm here for you

I have one more "You've got this" stamp set card to share for now. Truth be told, this is my favourite of the three.
I again opted for the white outline by embossing in clear powder.


I kept the card very simple so the focus would remain on the flower. Again I added a shadow with markers. I think this one is my best colouring job so far. And let me say, it is definitely addictive.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollections white, Bazzill
Stamp: You've got This - SU
Ink: Versamark, Sahara Sand - SU
Alcohol markers; Copic - R11, R22, R24, Y11, Y21, W1, W3, W5,SU Blendabilities - Old Olive
Misc.: Foam mounting squares

You've got this blossoms

For this card I decided to emboss the image in clear embossing powered. The white outline results in a much softer, almost watercolour like look compared to the usual bold black outline.


I opted to use just the blossom this time. The top and right one where stamped on my card layer, the left one was stamped on a scrap piece, hand cut and then popped onto the card with foam.

I also added shadows under all the blossoms with my Copic markers. I'm still practising, but am slowly getting the hang of it; although sometimes I notice after I've coloured a certain area that I didn't quite get the lighting correct, but I suppose practice makes perfect.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollections white, Bazzill
Stamp: You've Got This - SU
Ink: Versamark, Sahara Sand - SU
Alcohol markers: Copic - RV10, RV17, RV34, Y21, Y32, W1, W3. W5
Misc.: foam mounting squares, clear embossing powder

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon.
