Step by Step Tips:
The best tip I can give you is if you like this set, buy the bundle which includes both the Watercolor Wings photopolymer stamp set and Bold Butterfly Framelits. You save 15% by buying them together.
I wanted the yellow butterfly to stand out from the swarm so I started with a piece of Smoky Slate cut 4" x 5 1/4" It was stamped first with the large butterfly image in Smoky Slate. The wing tips were stamped in Basic Gray and the accents close to the body and the dots wee stamped with Memento Black Ink. The bodies were stamped with Basic Gray. I positioned the large butterflies equally spaced on the card front stamping only part of the wings for the background.
- The same process was used to with the smaller butterflies to fill in the spaces. This creates a monochromatic background perfect to accent the sentiment and full large butterfly.
- Cut a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" of Basic Black card stock. Round two of the corners on both the background and the matt using the Project Life Corner Rounder.
- The accent butterfly was stamped on Daffodil Delight card stock using smokey slate for the wing tips and Memento Black ink for the wing accents and body. It was cut out using the Bold Butterfly Framelits. Pop it up using Dimensionals.
- The sentiment was stamped using Memento Black Ink on a 2"wide strip of card stock about an inch from the top. Then insert it into the Ornate Tag Topper punch to create the top Crop it below the sentiment. Round the two bottom corners using the Project Life Corner Rounder.
