Beat the Heat: Designer Inspiration

July 23, 2013

So how does Elizabeth like to Beat the Heat? Well, she embraces it and makes a bright, sunshiny decorative notepad!elizabeth

The finished size of this notepad is 3 x 4 inches.  Elizabeth created the cover by stamping 30-181 Lace Trims in VersaMark Watermark ink and coloring with PanPastels applied with Sofft Art Sponges. The die-cut butterfly, Creative Dies 51-006 Flutters, was painted with crimson acrylic paint and placed on a band accented with tiny pearl dots made with 3D paint.

Don’t forget, you can Beat the Heat with us and play along with our current challenge…

    I love the way that the red butterfly is echoed by the red edging of the notepad holder as a whole as well as the red edging of the crisp white strip behind the butterfly. The 3D paint provides a lovely sparkle hinting at the iridescent nature inherent in the butterfly image.
