This project was inspired by a really cool print in the lobby of the hotel we stayed in during vacation last week, which by the way was fabulous - we drove from IL/MI to Myrtle Beach, SC in a 15 passenger van. The youngest passenger was 19 months and the oldest 77 years. Everyone was talking at the same time. The baby was loudest - laughing and giggling.
There are so many ways to color! The medium I chose for coloring this image was inspired by a post by Cee Cee, which you can see here.
Stamped destination image onto watercolor paper with StazOn jet black. Used a paint brush to apply liquid frisquet over butterfly image. You could also use masking tape. I find the liquid really nice for small areas. Allowed to dry.
Next I cut a label shape with a Spellbinder dye cut on scrap card stock and used a blending tool with a crushed olive Distress Ink pad to create a scalloped arch with the butterfly at the edge of it.
To create the white border, I ripped masking tape and placed around the image. I used the blending tool and a walnut stain Distress Ink pad to add color.
Next, I dabbed a tissue over the frisquet to pick up any wet ink. I then removed the frisquet by gently rubbing my finger over it and pull it off.
To complete the card I chose design papers from from Stampin' Up! and a paper I made with glitter sprays. The stripe design did not have all the colors I wanted, so I used a ruler and two of the pen colors in my butterfly to add some more lines. On the inside, I adhered a piece of design paper, colored the butterfly part of the image with a water based maker and stamped.
