Vellum Butterflies

Hello everyone, we are sharing our monthly bumper post filled with quick and inspirational tips and ideas over on the Design Team Blog today. All of the cards made by the Design Team have taken fifteen minutes or less to make, and using fabulous stamps from Chocolate Baroque show that great cards can be made in next to no time.

I have made a card as part of the post, and would like to share a few more details with you.

I used purple and green Distress Oxide ink, and covered a circular gelli plate, blending the inks where they met. I used a large flourish from the Patchwork Butterfly stamp set to stamp onto the gelli plate, not cleaning it in between each stamping. This meant that the colour from each stamping transferred to the gelli plate, adding colour or taking colour away, depending on how much ink was picked up on the stamp each time. It creates a very random effect, but I love how it turns out. I pressed the gelli plate onto a large white card blank to take a print.

I stamped and embossed two butterflies from the same stamp set onto coloured vellum, using Versamark and Wow white embossing powder, before cutting them out. I adhered the butterflies onto the background, and then stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Words stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

A really striking idea using the coloured vellum for the butterflies. The effect of the gelli plate stamping is intriguing with the way colours are added or taken away randomly. I particularly like your placing of the butterflies & the sentiment partly outside the circle perimeter - so interesting & the way the dot of the "i" in the sentiment is echoed by the circular eyes of the butterflies' wings not to the mention the 'v' echoed by the antennae shape.
