I have the honor of being Guest Designer this month at Dare 2B Artzy. Be sure to stop by their blog first and then the shop to check out all the amazing projects that have been created using these fabulous products.
Today's Guest Designer Project...
I just recently found these stamps and I am so happy I did. They are so pretty and the sentiments are lovely. Don't forget to visit the shop today and see for yourself!
First, I stamped the butterfly from the Dare 2B Artzy ~ Butterfly Inspirations set with Versafine Black Onyx ink and sprinkled the outline with clear embossing powder before heat embossing it. Then, I used Yasutomo metallic watercolors to paint the butterfly. The embossed lines keeps the paint from running into the different sections. Lastly, I cut a scalloped circle which would allow my butterfly to be used as the focal point.
The stamped sentiment is from the same stamp set. I heat embossed it to give it a bit of dimension. Isn't it a beautiful saying?
I used 110lb black cardstock for the cardbase and then cut a scalloped rectangle to coordinate with the scallop circle. I found a piece of pretty pattern paper that matched the color of the butterfly's wings. The final touch was adding black gems in the opposite corners.
Thanks so much Cindy and Kendra for allowing me to be Guest Designer this month. Looking forward to next's week project.
