Lovely butterflies

IMG_0570 Anyone who follows me on Facebook or Instagram will know that I have a thing for monarch butterflies. In fact, we’ve been rearing them from eggs to caterpillars, catching the metamorphosis into chrysalises  and then watching in wonder as butterflies eventually emerge. We’ve come to consider these amazing little things as pets and the children will often name the butterflies before we release them outside.IMG_0571 So when I saw the new Butterfly Flight Clear Stamp Set, I felt that it was personally made for me. I stamped the large butterfly design onto cardstock and used orange and yellow gelatos to add color. I blended the gelatos with a few drops of water on a fine paintbrush to get a real orange/yellow glow.

  1. Love these and I had none seen that stamp set yet! Yes I add color to my stamps using gelatos, watercolor, markers and spray to color my stamps at one time or another. I love your card so you, so lovely and perfect for spring!
