Skipping Stones Tip/Technique Hop


Hi there!  Welcome to the monthly Skipping Stones Design Team Tip/Technique Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Coralynn's blog.

I broke out the watercolors again for this card but instead of going for my usual smooshing technique I tried to do more of a wash.  I masked and stamped the butterfly from Healing Wings onto Ranger watercolor cardstock.  Then I painted over them in rainbow colours.  Once they were dry I fussy cut them and mounted them onto a black card base.  The sentiment (also from Healing Wings) was stamped onto white cardstock then trimmed and popped up on foam tape.  I felt like it needed a little something else so I used black gems to create each of the butterfly bodies.  

Okay, time to get hopping.  Your next stop is Ilina's blog.  Be sure to leave comments along the way to be entered in the giveaway.  Also check out all the fabulous stamp sets in the 

Jen  <---  You are here!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Black) Papertrey Ink, (Watercolor) Ranger
Stamps:  (Butterfly & sentiment from Healing Wings) Skipping Stones Design
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Gems:  Recollections
