There are some great images as well as sentiments on this stamp set, I could see it being used for many things
I love the floral designs for the butterfly & dragonfly, but I thought to myself do I really want to colour all that in. SO with that in mind & I figured others would think the same thing I decided to do the reverse colour technique – that is only colour the background & leave the actual stamped images uncoloured.
I stamped the butterfly in black ink three times on a 3½” × 8½” cardfront panel to fit the slimline cards Close To My Heart have. I chose a blue marker & started to colour in the background. I did add some Pewter Precious Metals Metallic Marker to the body of the butterfly to give the black a bit of metallic shimmer but I left the wings uncoloured.
I stamped one of the sayings onto some scrap & raised it up over the card.
It was a simple & fast card to create & still looked effective.
