Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Watercolor Wings for Spring

For last week’s Card & Cuppa I moved away from Sponge Daubers and Brayers and made this spring colours project.

Watercolor Wings Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! Card & Cuppa Class project with HIPPOFROG Designs

This bright and sunny project uses various shades of orange and yellow, with red highlights.

To begin, we created the mask for the Garden in Bloom Stamp Set background by folding a piece of Grid Paper. So Saffron and Peekaboo Peach are the paler orange and yellow combination.

The Watercolor Wings Stamp Set provides the Real Red over-stamped butterfly that flies across the masking.

For the large butterfly, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red was the darker colour combination. A piece of Black Baker’s Twine loops around the butterfly to create the body and antennae.

Just a touch of Wink of Stella on the wingtips adds a final bit of sparkle.

Join us for a future Card & Cuppa session by booking your place by 18:00 the day before.

Happy crafting
