Dreamy Butterfly


Hello everyone, I have a project to share that is featuring over on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog today.

I have created a panel using a heavy duty greyboard panel, covered with script paper. I then covered this with a light coat of watered down gesso, and chose two pretty stencils to add more detail to my background. I used Bundled Sage Distress Ink for the harlequin stencil, and both Victorian Velvet and Festive Berries to colour the floral stencil, adding a touch of red pencil to the flower tips. I edged the panel with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.
I added a lovely sentiment from the See Beauty clear stamp set, and my favourite big butterfly from the Patchwork Butterfly stamp set. I coloured the image using Zig Clean Colour markers and a water brush.


Thanks for stopping by, xx

Your colouring of the butterfly just makes it glow & I love the way the stencilled flower petals echo the pointy innermost segments of the two butterfly wings & using pink for both really brings it out. The various uses of script is fascinating from the sentiment via the butterfly's right inner wing to the background & just look at how the typeface of 'perchance' echoes that on the butterfly's wing & the cursive nature of 'dream' echoes the cursive of the background. Very cleverly designed indeed.
