Welcome to my Butterfly Bouquet spotlight week – this week will feature 7 video tutorials posted back to back to spotlight this early release collection from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue. The collection is made up of several components – Stamps, Dies, Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Specialty Paper.
Today’s project features the use of the Stampin’ Up! blending brushes to create a background and to colour in the butterflies the form the foreground of the card. As the Designer Series Paper (DSP) features a more muted, softer colour palette I took inspiration from this to pick the three shades for my background. I love the blending brushes, they are really easy to use and leave a consistent even colour across the card. In the past I have used daubers and sponges, both of which are great for small areas, but the blending brushes are great for larger coverage.
The three colours I went with were So Saffron, Misty Moonlight and Magenta Madness and I think you’ll agree that the colours together work amazingly well. The card is finished with a sentiment from the ‘You are Amazing’ stamp set, stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, which rounds off the card perfectly.
