ETA: And do I have a Passion for Papertrey! Aimes suggested I might want to add it to their challenge, so here it is. Thanks Aimes & Kate. I love your blog and check it often for all the lovely inspiration that is shared.
Aspiring to Creativity issued a challenge to"use the following photo as inspiration as well as a supply or tool that you own but have not used before." You can see the information here.
Here's my interpretation.
I only wish my execution could approach my concept. A close up might help.
Those are four stamps from the new PTI Embellishments set that combine to form the butterfly. They really achieve the graceful curve I was looking for. One each - mirror images - on the lower wing and two grouped to form the upper wing. Then those two had to be removed from the block and reversed for the other side. It's just I don't stamp well with white on darker paper. I hope you got the idea. I want to try it with darker ink on lighter paper.
In a drawer I found those beautiful pink pearl swirls by Zva Creative that I've never used. I snipped off one of the smaller ones and used it as the flight trail behind the butterfly. I added some gathered ribbon for the body and colored two corsage pins with Copics for the antennae.
I love the sentiment from PTI Butterfly Dreams for every child and here for Sabrina's granddaughter.
Thanks for stopping by.
