This week, we'll see how our design team members used the gorgeous Butterfly stamp:
Jill created this layout and explains how she created this multi-colored butterfly border:
I decided to work with a green, yellow, and red color scheme, to match the colors in the papers, and went with a varicolored stamping method. I began by selecting four Jenni Bowlin for Ranger dye inks, pairing Seed Packet with Stick Candy, and Chili Powder and Lemon Drops.
I placed the stamp on an acrylic block, and used each pair of inks on the stamp, dividing the color on the stamp into quadrants. I applied the ink pad directly to the stamp (instead of vice-versa) so that I could have more control over where the ink appeared.
Once the two colors were applied to the stamp, I stamped the image onto a sheet of JBS Core'dinations textured cardstock. I repeated the process with the other pair of colors, until I had a line of beautiful varicolored butterflies.
I layered the papers, transparencies, and photo beneath the butterflies, and stitched a free-flowing, curvy line over the top. I kept the butterfly motif going with the addition of JBS vellum-embellished butterflies and butterfly banner alpha stickers.
Thank you Jill for showing us this wonderful stamping technique!
