I have been posting tons of Butterfly cards and sometimes it is hard for me to remember the color combo I used. So I am making a Chart, similar to those Botanical or Insect charts of old, not sure what they are called. I guess I could Google......but I'll keep typing cause you know what I mean right? And I have Butterflies to stamp!!
You will have to enlarge to see the colors but save the photo for future reference. I know lots of you have purchased Watercolor Wings and have favorite color combos you have used. Please comment with your favorites and I'll send you a surprise!! This stamp set is amazing and I can't stop using it!
I stamp the main background image first and usually this is your lightest color, then the outline image, usually your darkest color or Black and then the dots image in a color that will pop off the background color. No rules, no limits! Let them dry before you decide to send them to Butterfly Heaven if you get an unlovable combo, or try sponging some additional color.
I do advise stamping the Body after you cut out your Butterfly. It is easier to line up.
Oh and buy some Shimmery White card stock for a Beautiful Shimmery Butterfly. I use this card stock sparingly but it is magnificent in person for Butterflies, Flowers and Holiday embellishments!
Several views so you can see the colors written to the side. If you have this stamp set play with it and create your own color combos. And you can see what I mean about the body of the butterfly. You can see above where I stamped after cutting out. But never fear it is easy to stamp again and make the body thicker to cover up your oops!!
These are all so pretty in person. I hope you can come to a class soon and make some Butterfly cards!!
