It's Suzanne here on another gray and dark gray and quite wet and nasty day (well, in my neck of the woods anyway).
To lighten this up a little I'm sharing some butterflies today.
plate 07 'wings' PLATECP07
background stamp french text SW S14011
stazon inkpad jet black
matte medium CH-HSP24927
water-soluble wax crayons
To prime the craft cardstock I spread a thin layer of gesso with an old credit card; onto this another thin layer of green acrylic paint was spread and yellow and orange paint sponged through a stencil.
The wings were stamped separately on scraps of gelli printed paper - not 'proper' prints actually but sheets of paper I cleaned up the tools with - and cut out in pairs.
For the bodies I tore acute triangles from bookpages (with the help of a ruler), rolled them up tightly, glued and sealed them with matte medium. Finally I gave them a wash of burnt umber acrylic paint.
Finally I added a bit of quite stiff twine with knots at the ends to make the antennae.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and having a look.
Please also pay a visit to our de stempelwinkel challenge blog and we'd love you to join in.
Have a great day ...
Hugs, Suzanne xx
