Hi everyone! Time for a new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers
. The 1st of the month sees our Watercolour Challenge kick off. It is always Anything Goes but we offer an optional theme for you to play along with.
Today I am sharing with you something I have never made before - a mini book. I cut all my pieces out of watercolour paper using the Sizzix Passport Die.
The die allows you to cut your covers, inside pages, and spine to bind it all together.
I used the smooshing technique using Crimson, Orange, and Lemon Brusho colours.
I decided I wanted to create a book just for butterflies.
I used a number of HLS stamps and a couple of stencils with texture paste. I also hand wrote some butterfly quotes.
Once I had all my pages ready and dry, it was time to bind it all together. I used Baker's Twine and added a little butterfly charm.
Here is what the die looks like (it is an XL Bigz Die)
I added a couple of little blooms using a stencil and ink but my main focus was the butterflies.
I hope you will join us over at the challenge blog! Here is a recap of the stamps I used from HLS
Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.
Thanks for popping in today and I can't wait to see your watercolour entries.
