Watercolour Wings

Wednesday 2 September 2015

You can make some truly beautiful cards with the Watercolour Wings Photopolymer Bundle. I have completely fallen in love with this set and I am now wondering why its taken me so long to use it? 

There are so many possible colour combinations that you can use for your butterflies. Take a look at this blog to see pictures of some wonderful colour combinations that Heike Vass from Germany has put together

For my butterflies I've used Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette & Rich Razzleberry.

I love the 2 step stamping method using the photopolymer stamps. Its so easy but if I could give you one tip today it would be this:

Don't stamp the body of the butterfly until after you've die cut the shape out in your Big Shot. 

You can then line up the butterfly body stamp with the paper so that it's in exactly the right place. Its pretty much impossible to be able to stamp this perfectly beforehand. unless you are not die cutting your butterfly of course.

I tried a few different backgrounds with this card - various different Designer Series Papers and the leaves from Kinda Eclectic, but none of them was the look I was trying to achieve. I am so glad I picked up my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set as this was perfect. I stamped off to get a more subtle look and added some Rhinestones for a bit of sparkle.

I also love decorating the inside of cards. The sentiment on the front and inside of this card are both included in the Watercolour Wings stamp set. The fonts lovely and look great stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed this project today. Next up is some Christmas Cards on Saturday. Its a Pinkies blog hop too so there will be loads of amazing projects from my Pinkie sisters. See you then!
