Hello … again! With the busy weekend ahead I thought I would share this card with you now. It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to make a card with an image from my favorite stamp company ~ I Brake for Stamps. This one is part of a set of four called Birds and Butterflies Collage Sheet. Each stamp can be purchased separately, if desired. The image shown above is called Butterfly Rose Collage. I do have the other three and am hoping to use them on cards VERY soon! Don’t forget ~ if you’d like any stamps from IBFS ~ use Coupon Code SAVE10MARY for a 10% discount off your order.
The image was stamped onto watercolor paper and painted with Tim Holtz Distress Inks ~ antique linen, scattered straw and vintage photo for the flowers; bundled sage and peeled paint for the leaves; pumice stone on the flourishes; and old paper for the background.
The butterfly was stamped on regular cardstock, colored with Copics, cut out and attached to the main image. I had done this as a last minute thought and didn’t keep track of the marker colors I used – sorry about that! Both images were then sprayed with Shimmerz Spritz for a little sparkle. The paper is from a K&Co paper pad by Tim Coffey. The ribbon and green braided cord are both from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by tonight! Tomorrow I’ll have a brand new Phindy’s Place challenge card ~ hope you can stop back.
