Butterflies In Paris


It's time to share my third project for IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® this month, and once again I was in a butterfly mood!  Are you ready for a closer look at how I put this together?


I gathered my supplies, including two stamp sets - Key Sentiments and French Travels - from Crafter's Companion US, a flourish and butterfly dies from Crafter's Companion UK, and patterned paper from Wild Rose Studio (via Crafter's Companion UK).  My inks included IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™Dye Ink full-size ink pads in London Fog and Angel Pink (as well as Lulu Lavender in Dew Drop size), IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaMagic™Chalk Pigment Dew-Drop size in Aloe Vera, and IMAGINE Crafts® Fireworks!™ Craft Spray in Lulu Lavender and Angel Pink.  Not pictured above is the IMAGINE Crafts® Sheer Shimmer Spritz™ Craft Spray in Silver.


After stamping my main image in Memento™ London Fog (on Ultra Smooth White card stock from Crafter's Companion US), I used sticky notes to mask off different portions of it.  Then I used IMAGINE Crafts® InkBlushers™ to sponge on Memento™ Lulu Lavender ink at the edges; I then sprayed Fireworks!™ Craft Spray in Lulu Lavender on.


I repeated this process with VersaMagic™Chalk Pigment Dew-Drop size in Aloe Vera, and paired it with Sheer Shimmer Spritz™ Craft Spray in Silver.


Once I completed my main image, I set it aside so I could work on other components of my project.


I die cut two butterflies and one flourish die, and sprayed and inked each one using either Fireworks!™ Craft Spray in Lulu Lavender or Sheer Shimmer Spritz™ Craft Spray in Silver.  I also used an IMAGINE Crafts® InkBlushers™ to sponge on VersaMagic™Chalk Pigment Dew-Drop size in Aloe Vera.


On my completed card, I embossed the striped piece of patterned paper with the Embossalicious Petite Dot folder (available from Crafter's Companion US and UK); I also stamped an image from the French Travels set right onto the patterned paper using my Memento™Dye Ink full-size ink pad in London Fog.  I love the soft, spring-y feel of the final project, in colors I don't normally think of for spring!
