After yesterday’s grey monotone creation I really wanted to bring a little colour back into this series of mini makes.
So I did!
Pow! Now that’s colourful, right?!
Anyway, best tell you how I cobbled this together.
The background was made by heat embossing the Script stamp from Indigo Blu onto watercolour cardstock using white embossing powder.
I then applied some Tim Holtz distress ink and spritzed with a little water and allowed the colour to spread and dry.
The butterfly was another from the Indigo Blue range. This was stamped onto white cardstock using a Versafine inkpad. I then used a pink pigment ink to brush on some colour. I then cut this out and applied a layer of Glossy Accents and allowed it to set.
For the “fly” sentiment I used individual mini alphabet stamps to spell out the word (and add the brackets). I brushed the edges with a lilac coloured pigment inkpad and then cut it down using my small Tonic Studios guillotine.
To assemble I first cut down the wings on the butterfly (poor thing) to fit the top layer of the ATC. I then applied some Anita’s mini gems down the thorax (his body – get me with those fancy words).
I layered up the background onto two more layers and then stuck the butterfly, and the sentiment into place.
The final touch was the addition of the eyelets for which I used the Cropodile eyelet hole punch and setter.
And there we have it, another ATC for the collection.
Marvellous isn’t it?!
I hope that you like it and that it may inspire you to have a go at these manageable mini makes.
