Best of Butterflies

This image is from one of the 25th year anniversary stamp sets Best of Butterflies.  I thought I’d play around with some watercoloring – trying to decide which way to go with the colors.  Happy endings!  I just decided to leave it as is. 

I stitched around the water color paper, added some splatters and……you guessed it…… some shimmer mist.  Just a bit.  Then I mounted it on another piece of water color paper.  So far, this is my favorite “Best of” stamp!

Supplies
Stamp Set – Best of Butterflies, Pursuit of Happiness
Card stock – water color paper
Ink – Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, So Saffron, Jet Black Staon
Etc – Aquapainter, sewing machine, Shimmer Mist

Remember to save your “25” sticker in each “Best of” set.  It’s a little tiny sticker on the image sheet – but you want to keep them.  When you’ve collected 6 of them you can choose a $14.95 set for free.  And we all love free stamps!  Hugs, Fran
