Stamping And Coloring Die Cuts

Saturday, July 25, 2015

 
Hey! I seem to have gotten into a posting pattern this summer.  Posting on the weekdays and taking the weekend to just hang out.  Which is the opposite of what tends to happen during the school year.  However, I wanted to join in with the PTI July Blog Hop today so here I am.  Technically, though, this post is getting done on a weekday.  It's actually Friday evening.  I wanted to get this post together early because we will be canoeing when this post goes up!  I can't wait.
 
 
So, the inspiration photo {pictured below} for the blog hop has a very Victorian and vintagy feel.  I like it, but wanted to try to make
my design a little more clean and modern.
 
 
I die cut the three butterflies from white cardstock and stamped the peonies with Memento black ink.  I colored the flowers, leaves, and background with Copic Markers.  I attached them in a vertical line with foam tape after adding a little curl to their wings.  I use the same motion you use with a pair of scissors on curling ribbon, but just with my hands on the cardstock.
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Enjoy the hop!
 


Cardstock: PTI Black, Recollections White
Stamps: PTI Pretty Peonies
Ink: Memento Black Ink
Dies: PTI Beautiful Butterflies, SSS Stitched Rectangle Dies
Other: Copic Markers
