I finally was able to play with my Stamp of Approval goodies. I almost did not buy this. However when I saw this butterfly, I was smitten. I had to have it. Both of these cards were made with simple techniques. For the top card, I heat embossed the flower design from Gina K’s Stamp Of Approval stamp set in clear on water color paper (the butterflies are from the same set). I then used Tim Holtz distress inks in Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean and just went pad directly to paper to make a crazy background. Added some water and let the colors blend. I then took some of the pearlized water color from the Kuretake Ganzai Tambi watercolor palette and added a opalescent touch to it. Once that was dry I stamped the butterflies in Gina K’s Black Onyx ink. I cut this piece down and added to a black base. I did not center this piece and added a sentiment from Altenew’s You Are stamp set. I heat embossed this in white on the side of the focal point. This was then attached to a white A2 card base.
For my second card, I decided to use the butterfly and stamp this on black card stock in Versamark. I heat embossed this in Antique Gold from Ranger. I then used my Artist Colored Pencil set to color in the wings. I attached this to lime green card stock and heat embossed the sentiment from So Suzy Stamps in the same Antique Gold. I attached this to some patterned paper a little catty-whompas. This was then attached to a white A2 card base.
I truly love this stamp set from Gina K from the Stamp of Approval. Cannot wait to try the rest of the goodies. Leave me some love.
