Emerging Butterfly Into Our Wonderful World





Did you see the lovely Kay on Hochanda tv yesterday?  They had some truly spectacular offers on the beautiful Indigoblu stamps ! If you missed the shows you can still watch them on Hochanda  tv online. I have written a little step by step incase anyone was interested in how I made the card shown above. 

 Butterflies are an excellent example that sometimes changes are good and can even be beautiful.

Indigoblu Stamps Used  :- Victorian GardenAnemone and Daisy  Live,Laugh,Love

Step 1.  I painteWarm Tan paint over my 7x7 watercolour card, while still wet I crumpled up some copy paper and patted it down onto the paper, which left lots of interesting creases and textures.

Step 2. Some thin plastic was next to be used to add some textures. I sponged some Olive waistcoat paint  over the crumpled plastic, and spritzed it with water before laying it down onto the watercolour paper and tapping my fingers lightly over it. It left  interesting patterns.I repeated this process using the Peppermint Tea paint

Step 3. I sketched the outline of a pupa shape and cut around it, and also cut a slit in the middle so the butterfly could escape.



Step 4. I then covered the pupa with texture paste. I used the side of a palette knife to score some markings on the pupa.When dry I painted it with Peppermint Tea, and Olive Waistcoat paints.


Step 5. After stamping and embossing  half of the butterfly in Black, I lightly added some colour to her using Grandmas Teacup and Lemon Meringue paints.I fussy cut the lovely butterfly and slotted her into the pupa.


Step 6. Black embossing powder outlined the flowers from the Anenome set and the leaves from the Live, Laugh,Love set very nicely, and I coloured them with the Marshmallow, Wimberry Pie and Pantry White paints. When dry I fussy cut all of the flowers and leaves. I then added some shape by curling the leaves and petals around a pokey tool,  which gives them a more natural look. 

Step 7. I stamped and embossed “Let Your Dreams Be” sentiment from the Victorian 
garden onto the background.I flicked several colours of paint over the picture to add some little dots of colour and interest. 

Step 8. As my blank card was white,  I edged the watercolour paper using a black ink pad so it would stand out nicely.

Step 9. A real twig was perfect to hold the leaves and the pupa.I used sticky foam pads to adhere the pupa, leaves, and the flowers which completed the picture.


Step 10. To make the card stand out when it landed through someone’s door, I Stamped some flowers onto the corner of the envelope. 

Thank you for visiting, I hope you managed to get some of these gorgeous stamps!
