Watercolor Wings Card


There is nothing like inking up a new stamp set, especially one with beautiful butterflies!!! Every card I've seen using the Watercolor Wings stamp set added to my excitement about this set. There are so many different color combinations to play with and my Watercolor Wings Card is using colors from this weeks ColourQ #296 challenge. Colours include: Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White. The layout comes from this weeks sketch challenge at Sunday Stamps. Once I had everything stamped I decided the Soft Sky chevron paper looked too clean. I decided to use the Dot Fade stencil by Tim Holtz with Daffodil Delight ink and play along in the stenciling challenge at Tuesday Throwdown. The final addition was the twine and three silver sequins. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Watercolor Wings Card Supplies:
  • Paper: Whisper White and Night of Navy cardstock. Retired Soft Sky designer series paper.
  • Stamps: Watercolor Wings and Watercolor Wash.
  • Inks: Stampin' pads in Daffodil Delight, Soft Sky, Night of Navy and Marina Mist along with Memento Black.
  • Other Stuff: Big Shot, Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies, Dot Fade stencil by Tim Holtz, sponge dauber, silver sequins, twine from The Twinery and stampin' dimensionals.
