Happy New Year! Welcome to my first post of 2013 for Great Impressions Stamps. I am delighted to be here for another 6 month term.
This week I pulled out Great Impressions Stamps Tiger Swallowtail. And what a beautiful stamp to work with. I used Copic markers and a touch of Stickles, cut out the image, and popped it up with pop dots to create dimension. Although I had a hard time getting this card from a single stamped image to the finish product. I initially stamped the butterfly three times onto white cardstock, colored each one a different color, then tried to make the three butterflies work on this card. I moved them around, arranged them differently, then finally got frustrated and took the pink and blue ones off... then my "ah-ha" moment came: one is better than three. The single butterfly looks great and the other two butterflies landed in my scraps pile. And that is how my 20 minute card turned into a 90 minute card. :-)
Anywho, I think it turned out pretty darn cute:
Have a great week!
