Hi there, we're back on the catwalk with a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this fortnight our theme is 'Butterflies or Bugs'. As always we're sponsored by the lovely Marina from Cottage Crafts who is offering a fab prize for our lucky winner. You may need your sunspecs for my DT card lol
I've created the background with PanPastels using white and yellow applied with a sofft sponge and given a quick spray of cheapie hairspray to fix. Next some splodges of acrylic paint, once this was dry I added some 3d stencil paste through some sequin waste and coloured with yellow mica powder. The bees are from one of the Sheena Douglass paint fusion sets, they've got glamour dusted wings and yellow viva gloss gel on their bodies.
The butterflies were created using some of my old favourite butterfly stamps from Chocolate Baroque (Butterfly Bliss and Just Butterflies). I stamped the butterfly silhouette with London Fog memento ink, cut out and coloured the back with yellow PanPastel. I used the detailed butterfly stamp with black stazon on Clearly for Art film, cut them out coloured the reverse with alcohol inks and heated them so I could curl the wings. I added Ranger black enamel accents to the butterfly and attached them with silicone. The tiny white 'pearls' were made with a Viva pearl pen. To finish off I've added some lace, yellow chiffon ribbon and a silver bee charm.
