Blueprints v3

Hi Everyone

Here’s my last card using the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous butterflies stamp sets.

Starting with a Bazzill Sweetheart card, I layered with Pinecone and 300gsm Watercolour paper.

On the larger piece of watercolour paper, stamp the smaller butterfly (Mini Blueprints 2 – CMS146) all over using a Archival Jet Black ink pad.  On the larger piece of watercolour paper, stamp the main image (Easter Blueprint – CMS144) using an Archival Jet Black ink pad.

Blend around the edges of both cards with a Distress Ink Pad in Walnut Stain.  Colour around the edges of each rectangle with Distress Marker – Scattered Straw and then colour the butterflies with Wild Honey, Walnut Stain and Aged Mahogany and soften this colour with a little water.

Add a second butterfly to the top of the main image and adhere only in the centre.

Adhere the images together and die a little twine around the lower part of the card.  The ‘Happy Birthday’ words are from Stampers Anonymous – Simple Sayings (CMS155).

Down the centre of the main butterfly, apply some Glossy Accents and allow to dry.

Happy Stamping
