Watercolor Butterfly - Penny Black

Hi everyone! Today I have a watercolor butterfly card using Penny Black stamps with you to share. I love the butterfly trio set, the images are huge! Here comes what I made with it:

I trimmed a panel from watercolor paper that almost covers my mint card base and stamped the largest butterfly using permanent ink. Then I applied Peerless Watercolors to the image, letting the color "bleed" from the bottom part. Now I flicked droplets of ink to the bottom part with a brush, stamped the sentiment and adhered the panel to the card. Finally, I adhered clear droplets to the card.

A last greeting of summer. Although the temperatures dropped immensely here, there are still a lot of butterflies around. I hope you like my card today! Thanks for stopping by!

A Stack of Classic Hedgehogs

Hi! I have a thing for hedgehogs. They are such cute little creatures and it's so fun to hear them puffing while they shuffle through the garden! Last night I had the idea to create a stack of classic hedgehogs on a card (unlike the very different hedgie from the last card) and wanted to give them an autumn background.

I need to give this card to my daughter, she cheered when spotting this stack :)
To create this, I had to do a lot of masking. First, I trimmed the panel of watercolor paper slightly smaller than my Kraft card base. Then I stamped the top hedgehog, masked it, stamped the second and so on. After the images were all stamped and masked, I masked off the edges of the panel with washi tape and applied various inks with an ink blending tool to create the background. Now I flicked ink droplets from a brush and let everything dry. After I had removed all the masks, I colored the images with Copics and stamped the sentiment. Then I adhered the panel to the card base.

This is my last entry to this year's MFT Card Design Superstar Contest. LOVE this company!

Thanks for stopping by today!
