It's inspiration week this week, at Polkadoodles, for our Things with Wings challenge. Why not pop over and take a look at the fabulous DT creations and go along and enter. Also don't forget that Polkadoodles turned 5 in May, and there is still time to enter to win a fabulous Birthday blog clandy too.
I thought I would use an actual stamp this time around and Fairy Flutterfly Gracie was the perfect choice. She is wonderful little set of 5 rubber stamps. The large butterfly behind Gracie is also from this set, and this has been attached with a little bit of acetate to give it the height. Gracie has been coloured up on watercolour card stock, with CTMH markers and Stampin' Up Markers. Using the blender pen from Stampin' Up, to give it that lovely watercolour look. She was die cut using the free set that came with my Genius Platform.
The papers are from the Fredericka Mini Collection CD, and also the other colourful butterflies are from the Dollie Daydream Goes East Collection.
I love the pastel shades and the papers went perfect with the colours of the image.
Some little butterflies and flowers, and a sentiment to finish it off. And for the back I added a small panel to leave a little note, using the little flower stamp from the Gracie set.
The items I used were:
Fairy Flutterfly - Gracie Fredericka Mini CD Collection
Dollie Daydream Goes East CD collection
So, let me know if you would like me to do a tutorial for this size. I might do it anyways, just for a permanent record for me :-)
