A Painterly Butterfly Card

Ginny Blog 0 Comments

Hi everyone! Ginny here, I’ve created this butterfly card today using an oil painting background and  Skipping Stones Design Stamps. I needed a sympathy card and pulled this set to use and then I noticed the sentiment about gratitude, and I thought I’d like to make a card using it.  Gratitude is such an immensely important emotion and without it, a person can never be happy, they will be living in the mode of always excepting more.  I may use this card and stamp set in a Sunday School lesson!

I printed my background and then stamped the butterfly – I did both of these on Canson 130# watercolor paper.

I colored with colored pencil and blender pen, my polka dot background layer is a rubber stamp inked with distress oxide ink.

I love the opaqueness of this ink when you don’t activate it with water.  A few microbeads added to the wing design.

Here’s the set

This is a very sweet and versatile set, great for bible                                               journaling too!





Thanks for stopping by!
