Joke aside, here is my DT piece for this week:
I worked with the VIGNETTE Artful Flutters
stamp set again and the MOM SUBWAY ART BUILDERS #5 – Unconditional Love
to create this one-layer card on Watercolour Paper. The butterflies are coloured with Metallic Gelatos, alittle bit of water added and then stamped. Before stamping I prepared the card with pale colour washes roughly the shape of butterflies and a very pale blue wash all over the card. Once dry, I coloured only the ‘Butterfly Kisses’, the stamp has 4 more sentiments on it, using my Elegant Eggplant Stamp’n’write Marker and stamped on the bottom right hand corner of my card. To finish off, I simply rounded three of the corners. The metallic gelatos are so sparkly, it is a shame it never looks it in a picture. Anyway I felt the card didn’t need anything else adding, I like it the way it is … hope you like it too!
Please join the fun … look forward to seeing your creations … and
