Butterfly Meadow

Hi Everybody,

back again with another Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge … and it’s Birthday time … 1st Birthday Celebrations are in order.

This mile stone was reached today. Hooray!!!

Congratulations to Kylie and the Team!!!

Now what’s the challenge this time. It’s about inspiration drawn from the following picture:

There are lots of bits in this picture to draw inspiration from … the colours, the butterflies, the grass, the cornflowers, the daisies, the bumble bee, the way the colours are shaded …

I picked some of these out to create a meadow feel …

Butterfly Meadow

How did I do this. I die-cut some with card and blended the inks for the background to start with (certainly celery, lavender lace and melon mambo by SU). I then stamped the grasses using different sets from Stampin’Up (pocket silhouettes, nature walk and charming) in certainly celery, wild wasabi and always artichoke. Using the shades of green with the darkest in front gives a sense of depth to the picture. I added some colour to some blossoms and leaves, stamped the butterfly  and coloured it in using inks and blender pen. To finish off I attached my picture to a lilac base card, added a ribbon, some rhinestones and a peel-off sentiment.

Hope you like it.
