Hello, friends! This week, the challenge #26, at Art Impressions, is to be inspired by nature. After going through my AI stamps, I was drawn to this beautiful butterfly (I-2223).
I started with a piece of glossy card stock, clear embossed some Queen Anne's Lace (Judith) on the edge. I used Distress Inks in Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, and Tea Dye, to create my background. I buffed the flowers to get them white, and carefully colored the stems with Copic. I stamped my butterfly in Memento, Tuxedo Black, and colored with Copics. I added my sentiment (A Muse) directly to the scene.
My stamped panel was then matted with black and then placed on a base card of Pumpkin Spice PL card stock. I created my own brad heads with a punch and Crystal Effects.
It is Friday! Woo Hoo! Hope you all have a fun weekend planned!
