Welcome! It's that time again - MFT teaser week is starting!
Today I have two cards to share, using the new Blissful Butterflies stamps and Die-namics.
I wanted to pair my butterflies with some rainbows - I went for a tradtional look with one card, and more of a deconstructed rainbow on the other.
I started my deconstructed rainbow card by stenciling with the Graduated Hexagons stencil. I over stamped the text from Art Expression Text. I anchored the text by masking off with a torn piece of paper and sponging on some kraft ink. I also used Abstract Art to add some Kraft brush strokes to the card front.
The gorgeous butterflies were die cut then stamped and I added a pop of red with some rhinestones.
I wanted to go with the deconstructed rainbow feel on the inside of the card as well. I used the butterfly as a stencil, sponging in the colour, then over stamping the text.
This card uses a more traditional rainbow for the background. I created a rectangle mask, sponged the edges, stamped the text from Art Expression Text then removed the mask and stamped the brush strokes. The text has more of a watercolour, blurry feel where it interacted with the brush strokes which I really liked - it reminded me of looking through a prism or water to see a rainbow! I love unexpected things like that when I'm stamping! (if you want a crisp look, try stamping the background first with a permanent ink that won't blur with a water based ink stamped overtop)
I think this is my fave butterfly of all the different designs in this set, it's so bold!
Inside my card I stamped the text again, and let my butterfly "fly" half off the card. I love those paint splatters, aren't they fun?!
