Flowers and Butterflies

July 5, 2018

This is another card using Abstract Impressions and one that is also pretty much cased from the Annual Catalogue.  This time I stamped the larger leaf image across a piece of Whisper White card using Soft Sea Foam ink.  I stamped the smaller leaf image over the top using Shaded Spruce ink.  I stamped the flower image using Petal Pink ink and then stamped the detailed flower image over the top using the same ink.  I stamped the solid butterfly wings using Calypso Coral ink which I had stamped off onto scrap paper first.  I stamped the detailed butterfly wings as well as the butterfly body using full strength Calypso Coral ink.  The panel is attached to Calypso Coral card and then Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Abstract Impressions stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of the Whisper White card using Shaded Spruce ink before attaching the panel to scored and folded Calypso Coral card.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped each of the images onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card using the same inks.

The possibilities are endless for this type of stamp set, its pretty and soft or bright and vibrant, depending on the colours you use.  It makes me think of all the Impressionist Paintings I had to study in my Art classes in high school (so long ago).  Hope you are getting a feel for this stamp set and maybe a desire to create with it yourself.

Bye for now,

Kris

      Thank you for your kind words Christine. I think the butterfly and flower panel is about 6.5cm x 14.3cm. With the Calypso Coral panel 7cmx 14.3cm. The ww card with the greeting is 14.3cm x 10cm. Hope this helps. I don’t have the measurements in inches, sorry.
