Rainbow Butterfly

A sweet, simple sketch from Jen Brum this week at Freshly Made Sketches, and it's just full of possibilities!

I just love it, here it is...

I chose a favorite stamp to use with this fun sketch, the butterfly from Waltzingmouse Stamps "Nordic Spring" by Claire Brennan.

I stamped the butterfly in Versamark on watercolor paper, then heat embossed it with white powder.  Added some rainbow colors with some watercolors, and a bit of Wink of Stella glitter over the top.

The plaid stripe and stitched image are also from some WMS sets.  I stamped the big plaid stripe with my Misti so I could stamp it multiple times with different shades of aqua ink. The sentiment is from WMS "Fine Feathers" set, also designed by Claire Brennan, which is now available at Gina K Designs.

The background is a stamp classic, Stampin Up's "Linen" wood mounted stamp!  Another of my favorites of all time!  The Nordic butterfly was stamped underneath in white ink, and heat embossed again.  I wanted my cut out butterfly to look like it was taking flight in all of its colorful glory!
