If Nothing Changed . . .

Hello, everyone!  Toni here with you sharing a dreamy butterfly card using PaperArtsy Eclectica Tracy Scott 26 and PaperArtsy Sara Naumann Butterflies PS122 Stencil.

Aren't those bold PaperArtsy butterflies amazing? I chose to use the smaller of the two so I could have a few on the card.  Btw, this is a 5x7 card rather than my usual A2. I plan to frame this . . . perhaps even during my lifetime. LOL.

My first step was to stamp the PaperArtsy Eclectica Tracy Scott 26 butterflies using Versafine Onyx Black. I then masked them so I could work on the background.

I first lightly sponged Prism Ink Blackcurrant Jam and Mauve Moment on the card background.  I then used Blue Lagoon with the PaperArtsy Sara Naumann Butterflies PS122 Stencil and Distress Oxide Weathered Wood with the PaperArtsy JOFY PS147 Stencil.

I followed that up with Distress Oxide Mustard Seed and the Visible Image Meshing Around stencil and a few Studio Light Art by Marlene Little Ladies images stamped with Weathered Wood.


Talk about dreamy but I didn't stop there!  I stamped one of the Lavinia Dandelions with Prism Ink Evergreen and Rainforest Green. I then stamped the Lavinia Moon Pods with Distress Oxide Peeled Paint.

My last step was to unmask the butteflies.  I considered not coloring them at all but I really wanted one to pop out so I watercolored it with Prism Inks. I smooshed the inks onto an acrylic block and used a fine watercolor brush and water.  Mmm, so vibrant. And a bit intimdating--do you see angry cat eyes too? 

I hope you have a great rest of your week!  In the meantime, check out the latest from Topflight Stamps
