Thank you butterflies

Posted by on October 25, 2010 in Butterfly, Gamsol, Prismacolor pencils, Thank you | 5 comments

Hi there,

I have made a card for the Clean and Simple Stamping challenge – Fall to layout #113. The challenge is to use the following sketch.

Well I thought it would be really easy to get something happening – but it has been sooooo frustrating!! Nothing was coming together last night! But alas, after some sleep, a tidy up of my craft area and some peace and quiet, I managed to come up with the following – and I am quite happy with the results. I think I was trying to be too clever last night whereas I should have just stuck with clean and simple all along!!

I coloured in the butterflies with 3 shades of turquoise and then used gamsol. The white card is actually textured but this is a bit hard to see in the photos.


Stamps: Hero Arts Antique Engravings
Ink: Versafine Ink – Onyx Black
Card: Regal Craft Card (white textured single fold), Turquoise Bazzill card
Other Supplies: Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, stubbs, Kaisercraft pearls, TLC Quik words “thank you” rub on.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

  5. Was just surfing around tonight reading about using Prisma color pencils and OMS and came upon your blog. I love this butterfly card. It is so striking. I really like the turquoise. Now I really have to get out my Prisma pencils and try this technique!!
