BUTTERFLY BASICS FOR GLOBAL DESING PROJECT GDP040 - Case the Designer

June 13, 2016

A new challenge as been released today on Global Design Project. We are casing  Shawn de Oliveira a very talented American Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. He is pure creativity, his cards are amazing have a look at his blog here.

I have used Butterfly Basics stamp set and  Butterflies Thinlits dies to make my entry today . I hope you like it!




 This is the card source of inspiration this week:

I though the flower is so pretty and perfect for water coloring  so I tried it in different colours and different ways and I decided to stamp it several times and use a yellow ink, just like Shawn did but only in the center of the flowers, I used peekaboo Peach for shadowing. I tried different green inks to add colour to the foliage  and I choose Pear Pizzazz for being a perfect match. Subtle and delicate. This is my first green card ever.

I stamped the flowers with Stazon black ink as I did want to get  a well defined image and fine lines at the edges ( Other inks  are thicker and juicy so they produce a bold image as I wanted the petals tobe really delicated  Stazon was the right ink choice).

I applied inks using aqua painters. I  didn't apply ink in some areas in the petals as I wanted white petals. 

To make the banner I stamped the honeycomb image in the stamp set with Pear Pizzazz ink on Pear Pizzazz card stock, then I stamped the sentiment with clear Versamark ink, I applied White Stampin' Emboss Power and I heat it up with the Stampin Up Heat tool. I overlay the banner on a butterfly made out of vellum using Butterflies Thilits from Stampin' Up! I embellish with a flicked  ribbon and metallic paper doilie.

Supply list:

Paper: watercolor paper, Pear Pizzazz card stock, whisper white card stock, vellum.
Coloring tools and Inks: clear Versamark ink, Jet Black  Stazon, Crushed Curry, Peekaboo Peach, pear pizzazz, white stampin' emboss powder.
Embellishments: 1/8 gold ribbon, gold metallic doilies.
