But today a new theme started at Allsorts challenge and we're back to our regular -weekly - schedule. Mervi is hosting this week and she picked the theme of "Mother's Day or Feminine". Hope you can join us for a chance to win some Woodware stamps.
I so love the style of stamps from the Penny Black set Butterfly Garden! It's a new to me set, and I think it is also from a more recent release from a couple of months ago.
I heat embossed the butterfly using white detail Embossing Powder on Bristol Vellum paper. Then watercolored it with my Zig Clean Color markers. It's been carefully fussy cut with Cutterbee scissors to add to the design. The background was done with a dotted stencils, unfortunately I don't rememer who it's by, but I think any stencil would look nice behind the butterfly. I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink for stencilling, last time I used this stencil with yellow ink and didn't wash it off (please tell me I'm not the only one who doesn't wash the ink off their stencils!!) so the two colors mixed gave this pretty shade of light green. The paper strips are from my stash and the Mother's Day sentiment on the card front is an older one from a Whimsy Stamps set and no longer available.
I continued with the stencilling on the inside as well and used another stamp from this set along with a sentiment from the Penny Black set Friendship. I thought this sentiment was perfect for the occasion.
