Watercolor Wings in Mint


Here's a little reminder of the 
for this month.


This time I did 4 step stamping.

I stamped the fullest butterfly first in Mint Macaroon ink, stamping off on scrap first.

Then I built used the next fullest stamp doing the same thing.

The outside of the wings were stamped without stamping off.

The last piece was also stamped full strength.

Being photopolymer, it was easy to see where I was stamping.

Where I was a little off, I used a damp Aqua Painter to blend the colors.

After die cutting, I used some Wink of Stella around the outer circle
and over the butterfly.

Can  you see that shimmer?


I finished the butterfly off with a little sequin.

is stamping too.


I hope I don't have too much embossing and die cutting to qualify.
Since the main images are stamped, I'm going to share anyway.

ANYTHING GOES

Great job with your multi-layered stamping, Bonnie. Great idea to use the waterbrush to smooth things together. Can definitely see the shimmer in the close up -- so pretty! xx

So pretty! I remembered the other evening that I never did more than glance through the new SU catalog so I sat down and really looked it over. This set caught my eye!

Ah, don't you just love clear photopolymer stamps?? I became a convert quite a while ago. I am hooked on being able to see where I am stamping. However, the rubber stamps from SU will always have a place in my heart...and on my craft studio shelves. ;)

Love the clean look of this, Bonnie!
