Butterflies Rising
Topic: Stamping

I had three granddaughters here a while back and, as with all my grandkids, we needed to have some crafty time. Having just finished up the stretching stamps class I wanted to show one of them a technique I had learned.

I chose to demonstrate the spot watercoloring that we learned on the bonus day.

In this you tape watercolor paper to the table, apply Distress Ink to a large acrylic block, spritz it with water and press it to the paper, hold for a bit for the color to soak in the paper some, and lift it off. Then you use a heat gun to day it. It is swiped with water on a brush and you hold an image stamped on acrylic over it and drop ink onto the damp paper underneath. You then let the color bleed out into the background some.

It is dried once again and then you stamp over it with black ink and make it into a card.

I chose to border the panel with gold paint pen, added some of this gold to the image and gave it a border of patterned paper. Then I added a sentiment strip cut as a banner, popped up on foam tape.

The granddaughter made hers with a purple background and an over-all butterfly background stamp enhanced with peacock blue.

Some fun!
