Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Lately I have been trying to use some products that have found their way to the back of the closet. I came across my Twinkling H20s the other day when I was looking for something else, and decided to start playing. These water color paints are so much fun and the "twinkling" effect is awesome. I posted a card to the gallery yesterday where I used them to create a blended sky background. Today I decided to try using them to ink my stamp. With a small paintbrush, I began painting one of the butterfly stamps from Gina's Take Flight. I used Twinkling H2Os in Egyptian Gold, Iridescent Gold, Blue Ice and Black Cherry. After painting the stamp, I sprayed it a few times with my Mini mister to blend the colors together, and then stamped right onto a piece of DP from the Basic Grey - Wisteria collection. I then colored in all of the empty spaces in the butterfly's wings with my clear atyou Spica marker. Here is a close up of the butterfly so you can see the shimmer and shine:

I turned this image into a card for Cat's sketch challenge for this week here at Stamp TV. I flipped the sketch onto it's side. All other dp is also from Basic Grey - Wisteria. I added some small and large stitching to my project with my Janome sew mini. I used some two-tone fiber that I had in my bid for the side element. Thanks for a great challenge, Cat!

When you have time, go searching in the depths of your supply closet! You never know what you might find :)

Warm Regards,

dee marie
