Summer Projects with Inspired by Stamping

Hi there everyone. This week at Inspired by Stamping, we are concentrating on Summer Projects.

Projects aren't really my forte but I really enjoyed making this one.

Using a 10" x 8" canvas, I used some acrylic paint to create the splattered background.

Then I had to create the background colours for my butterflies. I sprinkled brushos onto watercolour, sprayed the paper with water and then dried them with my heat gun.

While I was waiting for the canvas to dry, I started embossing my butterflies. I then fussy cut them all out.

Using foam pads, I popped them up on the canvas.

To give them more dimension, I bent their wings.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment.

Here is the stamp set I have used -

Thanks so much for looking xx

  7. This is really gorgeous. I would find it difficult to work with a space so much larger than a card, but you have done so perfectly. Love how you have colored and arranged your butterflies, and those splatters surrounding them really draw my eye in to your focal point.
