FS588 - Butterfly Thanks


Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper, Jennifer (picard76). I chose this card as my inspiration:



I focused on Jennifer's:
-horizontal blend from blue to green
-use of die cuts
-subtle thanks sentiment

I changed:
-amount of area blended
-punched up the colours a bit
-stamped butterflies vs die cut leaves
-die cut 'thanks' vs stamped

I started by stamping and masking the butterflies before blending a strip of blue and green ink over top.  I die cut my sentiment and then popped it up with layers of the same die cut underneath.

Here's a video:


Did you know there's a Mother's Day Sale at Ellen Hutson? Hurry - while supplies last!
