Leaves and Butterflies Card by Gail
Hello Rubber Dance friends. Gosh, October!!
I actually like the autumn season with it's gorgeous colours and all the bright harvest vegetables, but the shorter nights and cooler days do make me want to cosy down with warm blankets and hot chocolate!!! It also zaps the creativity a bit so this months moodboard gives some great ideas for themes and colours. I also like to look at challenge themes to see if they will spark ideas. This month the Lift Challenge has an interesting technique of stamping a repeating pattern and then colouring by stamping with another stamp. Well, I have plenty of stamps! So after a little thought this happened.
I stamped the small butterfly in an ascetically pleasing pattern
I stamped the leaf cluster on each butterfly with Dandelion archival ink and trimmed the panel. I edged with yellow ink, stamped the sentiment and mounted on a cream card base.
Thanks to the Lift Challenge for a fun technique.
I hope you feel inspired to get
out your stamps and create something today.
