I am loving the new butterfly stamps from Crafty Individuals. I have quite a few butterfly stamps in my stash but I love the vintage feel to these new stamps. The sizing of them is perfect to go behind any of the little people stamps in the CI range.
I have been struggling with hay fever this week so I retreated to the craft room and have been making lots of little butterfly people. I have a table of them just waiting to be used in projects. Great fun!
Here is one I made last week and have used it on a little canvas.
A really quick little project.
A close up of the main focal piece with the little butterfly girl.
Cover a canvas with a serviette or tissue paper.
Apply a coat of Gesso and a coat of white paint.
Randomly stamp the script image.
Use a mask and ink to make the circle patterns.
Spray with a fixative to fix the inks.
The main focal piece
Glue a piece of pretty papers onto a piece of mdf and attach this using hot glue to the frame.
Using a floral mask and relief paste make the pretty pattern and leave to dry.
Place the floral mask back on and color the pattern with ink.
Spray with a fixative to fix the ink.
Attach the small frame and the other embellishments.
Paint the brass corners and attach them.
The Little girl image was stamped, colored, cut out and a coat of modge podge applied.
The flowers were cut out using a die and punches and then colored with paint and then ink.
