Happy Birthday Butterfly by Heather

July 12, 2012

Heather Telford’s beautiful one-layer stamped card will inspire you try this technique at home!

SUPPLIES and INSTRUCTIONS: MaidenhairsSocial Butterfly. The background is made by applying three colours of ink to an acrylic block, spritzing it with water so they blend, then stamping the block onto the card base. Maidenhairs is stamped in the same three greens and the butterfly and sentiment in black.

    Strikingly effective combining the maidenhairs with this particular butterfly image.

    i visited your blog today and now I am a follower. I can’t believe how beautiful your cards are and it seems that you only use a minimum amount of extra embellishments. The cards are wonderfully simple and gorgeous. thanks for all you do!

    This is beautiful! Sorry but I want to understand the technique better. After creating the background using acrylic block, you use the same ink colors to just stamp the leaves over and over in different inks in the same family of colors?
