I like to shade a bit around the flowers with charcoal and white pencil, this technique lifts the images and makes them appear more dimensional, you can use a paper stump to blend out the charcoal.
The gorgeous twirly swirls on the leaves and stems are a great place to add dots of white gel pen and glitter glue for a bit of sparkle.
Kay always comes up with great sentiments too, I love this one.
Of course I had to play with all of the stamp sets and all of the stencils, it would be rude not too :-)! Isn't this butterfly just gorgeous and this is the smaller of the two in the set!
Here you can see the background layering with the leaf motif part of the PS127 stencil and white ink. Even though the opaque pencil obliterates most of the that white ink you still see it slightly in this close up which gives a pretty effect underneath and the illusion of transparency.
I've combined stamps from EKC24 and EKC26 on this tag together with stenciling in white ink again with the PS128 stencil.
The wings were stamped twice for this tag, once onto the tag and again onto card the coloured and glued over the wings on the tag but allowing a bit of curl at the ends.
There's a great bubble stamp in EKC24, it's great for making a border!
Thanks for joining me today, I hope you have a creative week.
