Things with Wings - Relax Butterfly

Hi there,

this is my third Things with Wings Special Feature Project Post for STAMPlorations:

  • stamp some texture onto a square piece of cardstock using elements from the STAMPlorations Scribbly Splattery Grunge set with Distress Oxide Ink (Scattered Straw, Broken China) and Archival Ink Watering Can 
  • ink up the edges with Distress Oxide Ink Seedless Preserves and apply that same color through the ARTplorations Rag Rug stencil
  • cut out the CUTplorations relax four times and glue the letters on top of each other - cover each letter with Nuvo Crystal Glaze
  • cut out the circle from the STAMPlorations Coffee Petites set from the center of the square and add burlap behind the opening
  • cut out the solid CUTplorations Flutter Zen 1 butterfly from black cardstock and run it through your Big Shot with an embossing folder
  • adhere the butterfly on top of some natural twine

  • cut out the CUTplorations Butterfly Cover Plate from smooth white cardstock
  • create a rainbow background using Distress Oxide Inks (Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet)
  • add more texture with some water droplets
  • glue the cover plate on top of the background before adhering all the layers to a cardbase
  • stamp the sentiment from the STAMPlorations Trendy Butterflies 2 set with Versafine Onyx Black

I hope you got inspired.
