This week's color combination over at Summer Card Camp 2 is not my favorite, and I have not been inspired to do much with it. However, today's assignment was to take a holiday stamp set and use it for some other occasion. As suggested, I pulled out all my Christmas stamps (though we could have used other holiday sets, too) and just looked at them. And looked at them. And turned them around to look at them upside down. Inspiration struck when I saw butterfly wings.
The stamp set is retired CTMH called O Christmas Tree. The sentiment was done by a small stamp store in Port Orchard, WA which made custom stamps. They have been out of business for a long time, unfortunately.
The butterfly and sentiment were stamped in Momento Rich Cocoa. The others were CTMH pigment inks in Pear, Topiary, and Crystal Blue. The paper is also Crystal Blue.
I popped the punched circles and butterfly up on foam tape to give the card a bit of dimension. I'm still debating adding some glitter on the wings but I don't want to obscure the watercoloring (done with Derwent watercolor pencils May Green #48, Sap Green #49, and Turquoise Blue #39).
If I had more time today, I think I'd do another card simply because this one is making me smile so much!!
Until next time,
