Here’s another project from my recent BYO Stamps Class. All the projects I designed we around various spotlight techniques. This cards uses Very Versailles with an added twist.
Very Versailles is a DistINKtive Stamp Set which have more detailed etching. I love the detail in the leaves.
Using Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand and Soft Suede, I created a vintage theme. By combining these with Whisper White, instead of Very Vanilla, I kept it more modern.
The stamping is a variety of first, second and third generation using images from the Very Versailles Stamp Set. I wanted to create a collage background. Once I was happy with the stamping, I then added the twist.
First I created a stencil using the butterfly shape from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies. Next, using a Sponge Dauber, I inked over the top of my background to add the butterflies. You could use any shape for this, but make sure you use a shape with a distinctive outline and not too much detail.
The sentiment is on a shape from the Label Me Fancy Punch. Another of these shapes is punched in a different colour, cut in middle and stuck to either end to create a layer.
A length of the very versatile Crinkle Seam Binding is wrapped around the project and a bow added. Using Dimensionals, the sentiment sits on top.
Finally, a scattering of Champagne Rhinestones add touch of golden bling.
I am so pleased this stamp set has carried over to the new Annual Catalogue. Take a look at the Catalogue to see all of the DistINKtive Stamp Sets.
