Watercoloured Butterflies | Butterfly Duet Blog Hop

Hello everyone,

Wow, you know something is a hit when it's close to being sold out after being available for only a few weeks. The Butterfly Duet punch in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue has been so popular that it has already sold out in some markets. Luckily, her is in Australia and New Zealand it is still available, however stock levels are low so if it is on your wish list then you need to order it now, otherwise you'll be waiting a few months for new stock to arrive. 

To show you just how great this punch and the coordinating stamp set (Butterfly Gala) are myself and the other South Pacific Artisans, Rochelle Blok, Angela Meritz-Reid, Jackie Aitken and Narelle Farrugia, have decided to share some projects in an extra special blog hop. 

The first of my projects features a little watercolouring on a split panel and a scattering of butterflies that have been punched out with the Butterfly Duet punch. My favourite thing about this punch and coordinating stamp set is that you get double butterflies each time you stamp and punch, which is great when you need to save a little time. I also included a panel of black and white gingham from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and some wooden leaves and flowers from the Butterfly Elements (both exclusive Sale-a-bration products).

For my second card I chose to use the emboss resist technique to create the watercoloured background. I masked off the little butterflies on the stamp so that the background only featured the larger butterfly. Because the background was so bright I chose to stamp and emboss the sentiment in white on black cardstock and partially fussy cut around the top to add a little extra detail. A wooden butterfly from the Butterfly Elements and a few adhesive sequins were added as finishing touches.

I'm so glad you have joined me today. Now lets pop over to Jackie's blog to see what see what she has created. I can guarantee you will be blown away with her creativity.

Happy stamping
